STEVEN LUTVAK’s rise to Broadway fame was met with the Tony Award for Best Musical in 2014 for A Gentleman’s Guide to Love and Murder. Lutvak is a past recipient of the Kleban Award for Lyric Writing for the Theater and the Fred Ebb Award for Songwriting for the Theater.

From Thoroughly Modern Millie to Violet and Caroline, or Change, Tesori’s musicals have become modern classics, garnering her four Tony nominations and the Olivier Award for Best New Musical.
