Vivek Tiwary chronicles the inspiring professional and personal life of the Fab Four’s manager.

Vivek J. Tiwary is a lifelong Beatles fan, but there’s one journey to Liverpool, England, that will be among his most memorable.

Tiwary, a Broadway producer, says the Fab Four’s manager Brian Epstein was first a business inspiration and later a “historical mentor.” So he made the pilgrimage to Epstein’s hometown eight years ago as soon as he decided to chronicle his life in the graphic novel The Fifth Beatle.
