Pamela Eberhardt

Pamela Eberhardt (Book and Lyrics / Performer: Laura)

Pamela Eberhardt is thrilled to be getting The Runaway Clone up on its feet for a third time! She’s grateful to NYMF and their team for providing this opportunity. Pam was born in New York but began writing sketch comedy in Los Angeles and moved back to New York to produce the original musical “Right Together, Left Together”. During her 10 years in New York she’s been able to professionally workshop several of her original pieces. Her favorites include: Far From Chekhov, The Break In and her passion project: Outrageous Fortune (A look into the injustice of our Justice system). She is co-founder of The Unknown Artists ( A Los Angeles theatre company), Founder of Play Club (A New York, Los Angeles and New Orleans play reading group) and Artistic Director of Ruckus Rockwell (A bi-coastal Project house.) She has never felt luckier than when she met her composer Jonathan Brenner at a Starbucks a few years ago.

Jonathan earned his bachelor's degree in music theory and composition from the College of Fine Arts at Boston University. He plays for the Broadway Sings concert series and gigs at various venues throughout the city including The Bitter End, Rockwood Music Hall, Le Poisson Rouge, and 54 Below. He currently works as an arranger for Sheri Sanders' "Rock the Performance" and as a writer at Deetown Entertainment.
