An Intimate Evening with Ben Vereen will be offered at Feinstein's through Feb. 17. Vereen's show features songs from his Broadway outings as well as a tribute to the late Sammy Davis, Jr. A star of stage and screen, Ben Vereen made his Broadway debut 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 Pippin 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 performances 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."

Vereen was most recently back on Broadway as the Wizard in Stephen Schwartz's Wicked.
