Playbill Magazine editor Blake Ross will host "Success on Broadway: The Un-Broadway Way," a panel discussion that will be presented May 7 as part of the fourth annual Creative Week.



The noon-1 PM discussion will be held at City Winery.

Panelists will include Lin-Manuel Miranda, Tony and Grammy Award-winning composer-lyricist and creator and star of In the Heights; Andrew Lippa, Tony and Grammy-nominated composer of The Addams Family, The Wild Party, You’re a Good Man Charlie Brown and Aaron Sorkin’s The Farnsworth Invention; and Rick Elice, Tony-nominated librettist of Jersey Boys and writer and co-lyricist of the nine-time Tony nominated new play, Peter and the Starcatcher.

"Three of the most creative and innovative writers working on Broadway today discuss how very 'un-Broadway' their success has been," according to press notes. "In this session, we’ll delve into some of Broadway’s greatest success stories: How do you go from the creative director at a leading ad agency to a celebrated writer for the stage? How do you turn a high school project into a Tony Award-winning musical? How do you make a cartoon come to life on stage?"

Attendees will have the opportunity to win free tickets to Peter and the Starcatcher.

A limited number of free passes are available to Playbill readers for the May 7 discussion. Email bross@playbill.com for more information.

City Winery is located at 155 Varick Street.
