BWW Interview: Ben Vereen of STEPPIN' OUT at The Grand 1894 Opera HouseBWW Interview: Ben Vereen of STEPPIN' OUT at The Grand 1894 Opera House
by Bryan-Keyth Wilson - Sep 23, 2016

There's not much one can say when you look at the resume of Ben Vereen. I have to admit I thought the email to interview Mr. Vereen was a hoax or a vile trick someone was playing on me. Now the reason I say this is because he is one of my idols and reasons I studied musical theatre in college and left to go to NYC to work professionally. We are familiar with his work with Bob Fosse as the Leading Player in PIPPIN and as Judas in JESUS CHRIST SUPERSTAR but Mr. Vereen still continues to give us the ole razzle dazzle on the stage and on the screen. He's starred in 9 Broadway shows, has received the coveted Antionette Perry Award (The Tony), a Drama Desk Award, and a Prism Award. Nominated for an NAACP Image Award, starred in 30 plus movies and television shows, and has a huge crossover career. Ben Vereen hit the scene in Martha Graham's PRODIGAL SON in 1965 and he's been working ever since. I had the esteemed pleasure to sit and talk about his illustrious career and the current projects he's working on currently. (more...)

All Hail the Queen! This week the Broadwaysted crew is holding court with the beautiful and fantastic Lesli Margherita! All Hail the Queen! This week the Broadwaysted crew is holding court with the beautiful and fantastic Lesli Margherita! We pour out some Maker's Mark and chat about Lesli's wild experience winning the Olivier Award for her West End debut as well as her current gig recreating her original turn in Matilda the Musical on Broadway. Lesli dishes about the ironic text message she got about Cats, her Star Wars wedding and ranking of the seven films in the franchise, and the time she died twice on stage (I smell a rat!). Kimberly recently attended Miss America and informs us all about the 'Show Us Your Shoes' parade and the entire group casts a fantasy version of Real Housewives of Broadway with famous wife characters. We play Lights of Broadway Show Cards 'Heads Up!' and Lesli shares her story about working on stage with artist and #FriendOfTheShow Squigs. (more...)
