Pasek and Paul
Multi-Award winning composers Benj Pasek and Justin Paul met as college students in Michigan and have been composing songs together ever since. They made their name with the music in Edges, which has been produced over 150 times worldwide, from South Korea and Australia to South Africa and the Philippines. Other works include music for Sesame St, Johnny & The Sprites (television series), and their original musical James and the Giant Peach. Their most recent show is A Christmas Story: The Musical!, which had a record-breaking run in Seattle and went on national tour in 2011 National Tour. They are about to open their first New York musical production: Dogfight, at the Second Stage Theater. "Benj Pasek and Justin Paul are the freshest voices of their generation…anyone who sees their work now will certainly be able to brag 'I saw their first show' after they explode all over Broadway"-Jeff Marx (Co-creator of Ave Q).
