Varla Jean Merman's Girl With a Pearl Necklace: An Act of Love Summary

Varla’s biological clock is ticking and she is desperate to get married. Will Varla be institutionalized in a state of matrimony, or installed in a state institution? Will the girl with a pearl necklace find that special someone who will get under her skin and see through the Vermeer? With a hope chest filled with new videos and songs, Varla Jean Merman’s offensive marriage act has something old (Varla), something new (her face), something borrowed (if you stretch the legal definition) and something blue. Varla Jean Merman's Girl With A Pearl Necklace: An Act of Love is written by Jeffery Roberson with Jacques Lamarre and Michael Schiralli and directed by Michael Schiralli.
