The actor/singer/dancer Ben Vereen brings his multiple talents to the Transcendence Artist Series for the very first time on Saturday, Aug. 9. Audiences will not want to miss the show about which the Newark Examiner wrote, “… a lesson in performance energy … a tour de force … the lasting impression of a man who loves life, wants you to love life, and has mastered both his medium and his message.”
Steppin’ Out with Ben Vereen has been dazzling audiences around the world. The show highlights Vereen’s unique artistry, combining a tribute to Broadway, Frank Sinatra and a very special tribute to Sammy Davis Jr. Few entertainers today are as accomplished or versatile as Vereen.
His legendary performances transcend time and have been woven into the fabric of this country’s artistic legacy. His first love and passion is and always will be the stage.
On Broadway, Vereen has appeared in “Wicked,” “Fosse,” “I’m Not Rappaport,” “Hair,” “Jesus Christ Superstar,” “Grind,” “Pippin,” “Jelly’s Last Jam” and “A Christmas Carol.”
His role in “Pippin” garnered him both the prestigious Tony Award and Drama Desk Award for Best Actor in a Musical.
