Broadway will be spending Thanksgiving Week with Tony Award winner Ben Vereen. Following a sold-old fall 2016 engagement at Feinstein’s/54 Below, Vereen will return to the underground New York cabaret November 21–25 with a new show, titled Ben Vereen.
The Tony Award-winning star of Broadway’s Pippin, plus Jesus Christ Superstar, Grind, Wicked, and other musicals, will perform November 21, 22, 24, and 25 at 7 PM; and November 23, Thanksgiving Day, at 8 PM. The Thanksgiving performance has an $85 prix fixe.
Vereen returns to Feinstein’s/54 Below with his program of personal stories and songs from throughout his nearly half-century career. Tickets go on sale to Feinstein’s/54 Below Club Members on July 17 at noon and to the general public on July 20 at noon by calling (646) 476-3551 or by clicking here.

His earlier credits include All That Jazz, Sweet Charity, Funny Lady (Golden Globe nomination), Roots, Ellis Island (Golden Globe Nomination), and the stage premiere of Fetch Clay, Make Man, directed by Des McAnuff at the McCarter Theatre. Vereen is developing a Broadway-aimed one-man show.
