Benj Pasek and Justin Paul, the theatrical songwriting team behind Dear Evan Hansen, La La Land, and The Greatest Showman, will appear at the Segerstrom Center for the Performing Arts January 7, 2019.

The Tony and Academy Award-winning collaborators will sit down with ASCAP Director of Musical Theatre Michael Kerker for the 7 PM conversation that will also feature guest stars performing selections from their work.

In 2017 Pasek and Paul won two of the entertainment industry’s highest honors, earning an Academy Award for La La Land’s "City of Stars" (Best Original Song) and the Tony Award for Best Original Score for Dear Evan Hansen. The hit Broadway musical also earned the 2018 Grammy Award for Best Musical Theater Album. They were twice-honored with the Golden Globe for Best Original Song for La La Land ("City of Stars") and The Greatest Showman ("This Is Me").

The duo also wrote the acclaimed Off-Broadway musical Dogfight, James and the Giant Peach, and A Christmas Story, The Musical, which marked their 2012 Broadway debut.
