#Teaflix Tuesday with very special guest Vivek J. Tiwary who is an acclaimed producer of musical entertainment from Tony Award-winning Broadway shows to groundbreaking immersive experiences, a Grammy Award-winning record producer, a #1 New York Times bestselling author and a media financier/investor. He is the founder of Tiwary Entertainment Group (TEG+). TEG+ is shifting the paradigm for music in entertainment as the only production company that focuses on collaborating with the music industry and celebrity artists to create narrative and/or deeply experiential entertainment.

Vivek’s graphic novel The Fifth Beatle won numerous literary awards including the Will Eisner Comic Industry Award and two Harvey Awards. It’s a Lambda Literary Finalist for Best LGBT Graphic Novel and has been added to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Library and Archives. Tiwary secured unprecedented access to #Beatles music for its TV adaptation, for which Vivek is writer and Executive Producer.
Tiwary is currently the lead producer of #Broadway hit #JaggedLittlePill (based on Alanis Morissette’s classic album), winner of 2 Tony Awards. Tiwary also won the Grammy® Award for Best Musical Theater Album for producing the Jagged Little Pill cast recording. Past Broadway productions Tiwary has either been a financier or producer on include such groundbreaking work as Green Day’s #AmericanIdiot, A Raisin In The Sun, #TheAddamsFamily, A Little Night Music, and both of Mel Brooks’ musicals The Producers and Young Frankenstein. Combined, these productions have won 25 Tony Awards and 59 Tony nominations.
A pioneering producer in the world of site-specific, tech-based, and immersive theatre, Tiwary consulted on the creation and development of The Walking Dead Escape and The Walking Dead Experience. He served on the Board of Directors for New York’s seminal GAle GAtes—considered to be the founders of immersive theatre. He also produced experiential shows and installations for boundary-pushing companies such as The Wooster Group, Fischerspooner, and the São Paulo Art Biennial.
Prior to founding TEG and online music education/empowerment company StarPolish, Tiwary held a number of major label music-industry positions and has worked with artists covering the entire musical spectrum from Bruce Springsteen to Britney Spears.
Among many charitable pursuits, Tiwary is the Co-Founder of Musicians On Call, a #nonprofit organization that uses music and entertainment to complement the healing process and is a two-time honoree (2020, 2021) of Gold House’s A100 List to celebrate Asians and Asian American & Pacific Islanders (AAPI) and their transformative contributions to society.
Tiwary is represented by Angela Cheng Caplan at Cheng Caplan Company and Lawrence Kopeikin at Kopeikin Law PC.
