The Pitch Pipe Show is a gleeful, irreverent romp through the songs and lives of Michael Liebhauser and Sheridan Stevens, with this latest iteration covering their most ambitious project yet: A full length musical. Starting this past September, Sheridan and Michael began working full time on writing a new musical, with the initial development taking place in the barn behind Michael’s childhood home in Jamestown’s North End. Now in their second performance at the JAC, Michael and Sheridan are bringing a host of the work created during that time, as well as a collection of their favorites from years past.

Michael Liebhauser is a Jamestown native, and a recent graduate of the University of Minneapolis/Guthrie Theater Actor Training BFA Program, and has been seen “lopping like a grinning Jack Skelington” on regional stages around the country. During his sophomore year of college, he wrote a couple of songs for a production of Romeo and Juliet and, on a visit to New York, showed one of them to Sheridan. Over the next year, they would go on to write a great deal of music. Michael has reported a subtle feeling of uneasiness around his collaborator, but it’s probably nothing. He currently resides on the couch in Sheridan’s living room.

Sheridan Stevens is a New York City based writer and performer, once described by the New Yorker as “A tall lanky man in a room full of mirrors”, and he’s not quite sure how he feels about that. A member of the Tony-award winning BMI Workshop, he has been writing in the city as a composer or lyricist for any project that’s willing to have him. He carefully groomed Michael to write lyrics for him, through years of insidious training, seemingly of his own accord. It was the greatest trick he ever performed. He currently sleeps in a bed, like an adult.
