The one the only Ben Vereen. On Broadway, Ben Vereen has appeared in Wicked, Fosse, I’m Not Rappaport, Hair, Jesus Christ Superstar, Pippin, Grind, Jelly’s Last Jam and A Christmas Carol. His role in Pippin garnered him both the prestigious Tony Award and the Drama Desk Award for “Best Actor in a Musical.” I had the privilege of teaching as guest faculty with Mr. Vereen as Artistic Director of the Broadway Theatre Project.

JAMES MASON (1909-1984). Suave British actor with a one-of-a-kind voice. One of my all-time favorite movie stars. Legendary in films like Lolita, Odd Man Out, Five Fingers, The Desert Fox, The Verdict, and so many others. As they say, they don't make 'em like that anymore.
