Elliot & Me

DECEMBER 2 to 12

Elliot & Me is a musical comedy based on the lives of songwriter Elliot Willensky and his younger brother Steven.

 

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.
