Ben Jeffrey was raised in Kansas City, MO, & while he's lived many wonderful places since he left home, in his heart, he's always been a Midwestern boy.
Ben caught the theater bug as a very young man, and he decided to succumb to the fatal disease, earning his BFA in Acting and Musical Theatre from Abilene Christian University in West Texas and a Masters in Acting from Rutgers University in New Jersey.
In 2008, Ben's cold, empty life as a bachelor came to an end when he met his wife, Christina. They married in 2009, & Ben, being a man of moderate intelligence, has continually wondered how he ever tricked a beautiful, brilliant woman like Christina into marrying him. When asked, she smiles and says, "Charity is a virtue."
They moved to New York City in 2009, and since then Ben has had the privilege of performing on Broadway in Disney's The Lion King, where you can still see him play Pumbaa the warthog, (a role he has performed over 2000 times!), and Disney's Aladdin, where he has played Babkak, one of Aladdin's comrades in crime. He has also had roles on television, in Louie, The Good Wife, & Boardwalk Empire.
In February of 2015, Ben & Christina welcomed their daughter Amelia into the world, & she continues to make everything around her better.
