TEDBroadway 2015 Video: Benjamin Scheuer

Screen Shot 2015-04-22 at 11.27.59 AMEditor’s note: Jim curates TEDxBroadway each year, working with the speakers on their presentations and helping them to answer the question: “What’s the best Broadway can be?” Below is his insight into the process, so you can find out exactly how this informative and inspiring day comes together.

I met Benjamin a few months back to talk about being part of TEDxBroadway. The original thought was that he might do a regular speech, but after one conversation, we both agreed that his music would mostly speak for itself. He thought he’d like to say a few words in between songs, and that’s just what he did.

It seems like every time we got on the phone to talk about his presentation, he and his show The Lion had won another award. A couple of weeks before the event, I started to get this feeling that he was going to bring the house down, and, well, I was right.

Watch it for yourself!
