About this show

A star of stage and screen, Ben Vereen made his Broadway debut as Judas in Jesus Christ Superstar, earning a Tony Award nomination for his performance. He nabbed the Tony for his work in Bob Fosse's production of Stephen Schwartz's Pippin (singing "Magic to Do") and has also starred on Broadway in Grind, Jelly's Last Jam, and Fosse. The recent revival of I'm Not Rappaport marked Vereen's non-musical Broadway debut. Vereen was nominated for Emmy Awards for his performance in Roots, Intruders and 1976's The Bell Telephone Jubilee. He also received Golden Globe nominations for his work in Funny Lady and Ellis Island. Live audiences remain Ben Vereen's first love. His exhilarating one-man show earned him the highest honors awarded by the American Guild of Variety Artists: "Entertainer of the Year," "Rising Star," and "Song and Dance Star." He is the first person to win three of these AGVA awards in one year. He continues to headline on showroom stages of Las Vegas, Atlantic City, Lake Tahoe, and throughout the United States as well as in Europe, Asia, and the Caribbean Islands.
