Bring your date to see legendary Broadway hoofer and singer Ben Vareen at the Dorothy Menker Theater October 15, and stay at the nearby and affordable Days Inn Alsip Chicago Hotel!
Ben Vareen and his band appear for one night, combining an homage to Broadway, Frank Sinatra and Sammy Davis, Jr. He will sing and dance, and tell stories of his life!
Ben Vareen grew up on the wrong side of the tracks, only finding out he was adopted when he was twenty-five. He enrolled in the High School of Performing Arts in New York and studied dance. He made his professional debut in the show “The Prodigal Son.” He was discovered by Broadway legend Bob Fosse and starred in the Las Vegas version of “Sweet Charity.” His big break came when he starred in the original Broadway cast of “Hair.” He went on to star in “Pippin” and “Jesus Christ Superstar.”
“Mr. Vareen is a song and dance man who never lets up. He wins you over with his sheer energy, good-will and show biz no how.” The New York Times
