Hartford Stage's Broadway Series. The shows are at the Roberts Theatre in West Hartford for the summer while the Stage undergoes renovation.
The intimate theatre is the perfect setting for this show. I first saw Vereen on Broadway the week before Jesus Christ Superstar opened -- the last week of previews. He created the role of Judas and he still has that power in his performance today.
Tickets are available for Saturday night and Sunday afternoon. Do yourself a favor and go see one of the few triple-threats in show business today. Two hours without intermission -- we could have listened to him and his incredible jazz band all night.
