Before Amadeus, there was Alexander Pushkin's Mozart and Salieri—part of his collection, The Little Tragedies. In 2018, Six Pack and a Song produced Pushkin's play as an audiodrama. This provocative historical myth of jealousy and betrayal was performed entirely as a two man show by Jeffrey Dean Hampton and Andy Jones and features musical performances by both.

All of the piano is performed by Jeffrey Dean Hampton, all of the guitar by Andy Jones.
