Ben Vereen – Episode 45

Tony-winning actor Ben Vereen sits down with Greg Kelly for a heartwarming chat about hard work and success. 

The original Leading Player in Broadway’s Pippin, Vereen quickly rose to fame appearing on stage and screen. His charisma, talent and affable nature won the hearts of millions across the country in the 60’s and 70’s. Vereen’s career as a dancer and performer chose him, he says. Not the other way around.

Plus, he and Greg discuss overcoming the hurdles of being a Black entertainer in the late 20th century and why Vereen says he never paid attention to color.
