Pasek and Paul

If you haven’t heard these two names in the last 12 months… there is something wrong with you!

Benj Pasek and Justin Paul rocked it both on stage and on the big screen. Their first big hit was the Broadway musical “Dear Evan Hansen”, following the story of Evan Hansen, who invents an important role for himself in a tragedy that he did not earn.

This was based on Pasek’s own high school experience. The starring role was originated by Broadway sensation Ben Platt. Sensation?? Why? You can go check it by yourself in here

And from Broadway to the big screen… The Greatest Showman! Hugh Jackman got the leading role in a big musical again but in this case, the most successful song went to Broadway actress Keala Settle and her smash hit “This is me”.But… what is it about them that we like so much? Starting with Evan Hansen,  who does not love the anti-hero? A character that is not perfect, a character that makes mistakes, a character that could be just like us. There is no greater feeling that relating to someone we see from an audience point of view. Seeing someone else’s flaws and think: that could be me, I could have done that. Normal people. And Evan could not be more normal, he is a lonely boy who has trouble making friends and that ends up making a mistake that in the end will make him a better person. And, of course, who does not need to hear this message?

Now moving onto “The Greatest Showman”, even though the setting is completely different, the message does not differ that much. The movie is about the underdogs of New York City’s mid 19th century and how they create the concept of the circus. Pasek & Paul’s music is vibrant and energetic. If you have not listened to the music yet, we invite you to take a look at this great piano medley by Constantino Carrara.

And of course, we cannot forget about the timeless hit “This is me“.

So far, we have only had the privilege of working in Waving Through a Window but we would love to work on more… Any suggestions?
