Ben Jones returns to Blue Strawberry with a funny, moving and deeply personal evening of classic standards, soaring showstoppers and modern hits, punctuated with raucous, side-splitting and devastatingly honest stories from his own love life. Serenading audiences with his “extraordinary voice” (Night Life Exchange), Jones appears alongside his music director and collaborator, the legendary Ron Abel. In this hilarious followup to his “Jaw-Dropping” (BroadwayWorld) first show, I Think I’m in Love, Ben confronts relationships, breakups, sex and infidelity head-on with his original “puckish sense of humor” and “tongue-in-cheek mixture of comedy and sex” (BroadwayWorld).
Featuring songs by Joni Mitchell, Harold Arlen, John Mayer, Bruno Mars, Peter Allen, Bo Burnham, Stephen Sondheim and Lin-Manuel Miranda, this show is sure to be an evening of “musical talent, humorous storytelling, authentic personality, and energetic positivity” (BroadwayWorld) that you won’t want to miss!
