For a couple of weeks, entertainer Ben Vereen has been touring the islands doing a series of performances and appearances behind his recent Steppin’ Out Live album. The theatre legend took time to drop by our own theatre – The Atherton Performing Arts Studio -- for a conversation with HPR’s Dave Lawrence, including talking about his first experience on-stage.
Ben Vereen performs live tomorrow on Maui at the MACC, and then Saturday night at Leeward Community College Theatre on O`ahu. Get more on Ben at his website benvereen.com.
Our engineer will be working this Saturday on HPR-1 and HPR-2 for O'ahu North Shore. Power should be back to full strength once he's finished. All other transmitters are operating normally.
