Ben Cameron is your Broadway Buddy! Taking the stuffy out of the stuff and the biz out of the show. Ben brings the Broadway community right to your door, like a friendly neighbor dropping off a tray of homemade brownies..YUM. Broadway Brownies. Ben likes you.

Ben is a Broadway veteran having appeared in Footloose (original cast), Aida and a little show called Wicked (original cast, if you listen to track #2 of the Wicked cast album you can hear Ben drop the plot pivotal line "Glinda, Is it true your were her friend?"…feel free to applaud wildly into your computer screen). Ben has toured the US and Europe in productions of Footloose, Fame, The Who's Tommy, State Fair and Sweet Charity (playing opposite Molly Ringwald, and yes, she's as good a kisser and you had hoped). Ben has appeared on cast albums of Footloose, Wicked and Reach The Sky: The Music of Bobby Cronin singing 'Dance Your Troubles Away' (a song written for him by Mr. Cronin). Ben has enjoyed 2 sold out runs of his 1 man show "Different is Good" in 2005 and 2010. He continues to write and direct and choreograph intimate shows for Broadway and cabaret stars at some of NYC's most notable venues. Ben's signature, zany wit has has found him writing for NYMF Inaugural Gala, The Lucille Lortel Awards, Broadways Benefit for Hurricane Relief and more. As a dancer Ben has performed on The ESPY Awards, for recording artists, in the inaugural companies of Odyssey Dance Theatre and Dre.Dance (Taye Digg, Andrew Palermo dirs.), Club Indigo and Broadway's Best in Atlantic City under the direction of Joe Lanteri. Ben has served on the faculties of NYU's CAP21 studio and Wagner College and as creative consultant for Mapinspired:The Storytellers' Dance Company. Ben continues to teach dance and theatre workshops and choreograph around the world. For information on master classes and choreography please reach out via the contact page on this website.

After hanging up his dance belt , Ben rallied his "theatre geekdom" and created Broadway Sessions. Sessions has been running for over 8 years and brings Broadway's brightest together each and every week at The Laurie Beechman Theatre. Since creating Sessions Ben has become one of the theatre communities most beloved hosts and personalities. Ben served as host of Mostly Sondheim at The Duplex for 5 years (3 time MAC nominee) and hosted countless concerts, benefits and events including BC/EFA's Flea Market Celebrity Autograph Table, Rockers on Broadway, Living For Today, Broadway at The W, NYMF ASCAP/BMI Meet the Composers, Onstage NY Talent Competitions, New York City Dance Alliance National Season Finales (multiple years), The Broken Leg Podcast w/ Tony winner Lena Hall and (drumroll please), Broadway Sessions Beach Party on Fire Island and the ultimate Broadway fan experience- Broadway Con '16 and '17. Ben has also produced web series My Broadway Bar, Dance Captain Dance Attack and Broadway ObSessions. Ben has gone on to host several television events on PBS WNET THIRTEEN including Masterpiece Classic's Downton Abbey New Year's Marathon, Hamilton's America and American Master's Norman Lear doc. He was even featured on Wendy Williams's street Talk Segment joking on Nikki Minaj and Adele…cuz, classy.

Sure there's a lot more to tell, but we'll save that for face to face. We can talk about his Mormon upbringing in Utah, his stellar tween community theatre resume, his affinity for all things Muppet and The Golden Girls, his obsessions w/ bowties, his daily struggle to stay out of McDonald's, his addiction to documentary films and love for misfits and weirdo's everywhere, the skies the limit. Ben continues to bring his infectious upbeat energy and hilarious lightning wit to a variety of projects. Ah, hek, he loves you!
