Tomorrow (October 22, 2011) see the legendary, Ben Vereen perform at the South Orange Performance Center at 8pm.

Thank you Ben for the lovely interview.

“It’s always pleasant to spend time in the company of a survivor, a pro and a performing prince. Ben Vereen is all three.”–The New York Observer
Few entertainers today are as accomplished or as versatile as Tony Award winner Ben Vereen. His legendary performances on stage and screen transcend time and have been woven into the fabric of this country’s artistic legacy. A musical autobiography of Vereen’s life in showbiz, Steppin’ Out features Broadway classics, songs made famous by Frank Sinatra and a very special tribute to his longtime friend and mentor, Sammy Davis, Jr.
If you miss the show do two things:
ONE - You can get Ben's CD Steppin Out Live on iTunes and Amazon
TWO - On November 8th, our show will be entitled "Trailblazers" and you can listen to my portions of my interview with Ben Vereen that are not included in this web exclusive.
Don't forget to tune in to the Artsy Fartsy Show, Tuesdays at 2pm on WBAI 99.5 FM in NY, PA, NJ, CT and online wbai.org
