Vijay and Stephens is the creative team of Amrita Vijayaraghavan and Andrew Stephens. A writing and directing duo with production bonafides, Vijay and Stephens tells stories - both their own and others' - in scripted, live, and recorded formats.
Since 2011, V&S have directed, produced, curated, and performed in live events ranging from rooftop poetry slams, to late night dancehall dustups, to cabarets and more. They have presented young writers, musicians, and performers who have gone on to publish and present work on national and international platforms.
As award winning writers and musicians themselves, V&S write music and words for the stage, and more recently, for the screen. In 2018, they were quarter-finalists in Final Draft’s Big Break Contest with their big-haired, small-dreams comedy, The Lord’s Werq. They are currently developing two new projects for television.
In addition to their own creative work, V&S works closely with the New York Times to produce national events geared at bringing the newsroom closer to subscribers. They also produce the chamber music series "A Little Night Music" at Lincoln Center's annual Mostly Mozart Festival. Other recent credits include Ralph Lauren’s 50th Anniversary show and dinner in Central Park and Chanel’s 2019 Metier D’Art collection at the Metropolitan Museum of Art. Former clients include Carnegie Hall, Samsung, Adobe, and Moet/Hennessy, among others.
