The play centers on songwriter Elliot and his younger brother Steven sharing their ambitions, frustrations, triumphs, and their desire to fulfill their dreams. It is filled with humor, emotion, and unexpected twists.
Elliot is a charming, free-spirited ladies’ man overflowing with talent, joie de vivre, and a knack for driving his business-minded brother Steven crazy. 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 the likes of 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.
