Steppin’ Out with Ben Vereen is an evening filled with song, dance, stories, and humor that takes you on a journey through Broadway with some of the greats of our time including Frank Sinatra and Sammy Davis Jr. The show features hit songs such as “Magic to Do” from “Pippin,” “Defying Gravity” and “For Good” from “Wicked” and “Life is Just a Bowl of Cherries.” The show won the prestigious Cabaret Award after playing New York’s 54 Below in the spring of 2015.
