Eli The Musical Guy & Pearl The Shakespearean Girl is an uplifting story, for all ages, of loveable, offbeat characters, who’ve been bred, from before they were born, to be stars. Eli blithely sings and dances his life away, as he’s been raised to, while Pearl, more severe, believes life is a Shakespearean production. Despite their talents, neither has tasted success which causes Pearl’s and Eli’s parents (after being driven by an unsuppressed craving to live vicariously through their offspring) to regret their stardom-seeking, child-rearing decisions. Bowing to parental pressure, Eli and Pearl both try to “go straight” by getting a jobs in the “real world.” Hilarity ensues!
