Mr. Vereen has performed in some of the most notable Broadway productions, television series, dramas and variety shows of our time included ROOTS, the most successful mini series to date. Ben’s newest feature film that opened on December 12th was Paramount Studios’ TOP FIVE starring Chris Rock. Ben will co-star with Richard Gere on the upcoming film TIME OUT OF MIND which will debut later this year. Ben is currently developing his one man show for Broadway written by Joe Calarco with music composed by Stephen Schwartz, probably the greatest contemporary composer of our time. In addition, CBS Sunday Morning is producing a profile on Ben. This Spring, the Ben Vereen Awards will take place, an honor for Ben, where he continues to inspire and teach our youth.
