This Sunday’s Giveaway: 2 tickets to see the star with “magic to do”.

I remember hearing that Ben Vereen was in a car accident in the early 90s.  People were amazed that he survived, and no one gave him much hope for leading a normal life again, never mind leading the life of an entertainer.

Well, they forgot that they were dealing with the one and only Leading Player, Ben Vereen,

Ben battled all the way back after that tragic accident, and went on to do a whole ton of stuff, including a turn in Wicked.

Since that wasn’t enough for the indefatigable star, now he’s doing a one-man show celebrating Broadway, Frank Sinatra and Sammy Davis, Jr., which he’ll perform on Friday, February 18th at Town Hall here in NYC.

And I’ve got two tickets to see this Tony Award winning Broadway legend for one of you!

Here’s how to enter this week’s Sunday Giveaway:

Jump up and down and scream, “I love Ben Vereen!”  The person I hear first from my office on 49th St. wins.


Hehe. Sorry, bad blogger humor.

This week we’re going to make you work a little harder.  It’s Ben Vereen trivia time!  To win the tickets, you’ll need the answer to this question:

Q:  What character did Ben play on TV’s Fresh Prince of Bel Air?

Got it?  No?  Don’t worry, gheating (which is my word for google-cheating) is allowed.  Get that answer however you can and email it here.  We’ll choose the winner randomly for one of the readers who gets that answer right.

Enter today!
