Description

Elliot & Me is a musical comedy based on the lives of songwriter Elliot Willensky and his younger brother Steven. Elliot is a charming, free-spirited ladies’ man overflowing with talent and joie de vivre… with a knack to drive Steven crazy. The brothers have written a two-man show they are preparing to pitch to legendary Broadway producer Max Stone. It’s a heartfelt story of brotherly love based on a powerful bond that has grown through the years.

Elliot and Steven both reflect on the volatile ups and downs of their shared experiences: from their raucous “wonder years” growing up in Bayonne, NJ; to the painful conflict when Elliot defies the expectations of his traditional middle-class Jewish family and drops out of medical school to write pop songs; to Elliot’s rise to stardom writing hits for Michael Jackson and Whitney Houston and Steven’s starry-eyed admiration for his Hollywood lifestyle; and eventually to their role reversals when Elliot’s career hits a few bumps in the road and he needs to rely on Steven for help.

Elliot & Me is filled with humor, colorful personalities, unexpected situations, and uplifting musical moments.
