Ben Nordstrom Ben Nordstrom

     With an affable charm, a quick joke, and a soaring tenor, Ben will share musical stories of parenting, love, theatre, and of course, the holidays. My Favorite Stuff marks Ben Nordstrom’s solo debut at Blue Strawberry. He’ll be joined by the iconic Steve Neale on piano. Together, they will span a wide array of musical styles from 70s pop/rock to contemporary musical comedy to the Great American Songbook. By the end of the night, Ben’s favorite stuff will be yours too.

     Ben is a well-known presence in the St. Louis theatre community. As an actor he has appeared at The Muny, The Rep, Shakespeare Festival StL, Stages, and many others. He has received two Kevin Kline Awards and a StL Theatre Circle Award. HIs cabarets and concerts have sold out the Sheldon Concert Hall, the Monocle, the Kranzberg, and the Gaslight Theatre.
