BEN VEREEN. Playbill signed: "Ben/Vereen" on cover, 62p, 5¼x8½. New York, circa March 2001. Program for Fosse at the Broadhurst Theatre on Broadway. The musical ran from January 14, 1999-August 25, 2001; Vereen, who joined the cast as a replacement performer and co-starred with Ann Reinking at the time he signed this program, did not tap dance as tap was one of the dance styles he had not mastered. The musical was choreographed by Bob Fosse, who had tapped Vereen for Pippin, for which the actor earned the 1973 Tony Award for Best Actor (Musical). A Broadway presentation of Fosse, starring Vereen, was filmed for a TV special that aired in 2001. Ben Vereen (born in 1946) had debuted on Broadway at the age of 22 in Hair and eventually played Judas in Jesus Christ Superstar, a role that earned him the Theatre World Award and a Tony nomination. The versatile actor also appeared in a number of feature films, including Funny Lady and All that Jazz, and is also known for his role as "Chicken George" in the TV mini-series, Roots (1977). In 1978, Vereen's special, Ben Vereen: His Roots, was nominated for eight Emmy Awards. Ink smudged at the upper loop of the "B". Stray ink marks at upper border, slightly soiled. Overall, fine condition.
