You mean Ben Vereen is HERE?! I had to force myself to keep breathing. I pictured Ben’s face in Pippin on Broadway. I can still remember my heart in my throat as he opened up the show, “Join us, journey to aspire. We’ve got magic to do, just for YOU.” Oh, if you’ve never seen this, enjoy the magic of Ben Vereen.
How about when Pippin is freaking out and Ben delivers his iconic roller coaster response, “EEEEE-ZZZ Baby!” at the end of the incredible song and dance number, You’re On the Right Track.
Broadway fun fact: Ben Vereen won a Tony award for this performance and Patina Miller also did 40 years later. It was the first time 2 difference sexes won a Tony for playing the same part.
