NYU Special Commission, 2005-2012 – Play exploring university student issues, Madison Square Garden, Radio City Music Hall, Beacon Theatre
Commissioned by the New York University Wellness Exchange, the Reality Show is an hour-long musical comedy PSA about the tough issues kids come up against as they enter into NYU created by Liz Swados and the cast of current NYU students. The show explores what it’s like to live in New York City as a student, the specific joys and trials of the NYU campus, mental health, sex, drugs, alcohol, academic pressure, and coming into one’s own for the first time living away from home. The show has been performed in various incarnations at Madison Square Garden, Radio City Music Hall and on the NYU: Abu Dhabi campus.
