Characters must find love in “Nobody Loves You,” a reality TV musical by Gaby Alter and Itamar Moses. The musical will be at Atlanta's Horizon Theatre with performances starting tomorrow and running through April 30.
The main character in the musical is Jeff, a philosophy graduate student, who gets a spot on “Nobody Loves You” to win back his ex-girlfriend. There is also Jenny, a jaded producer on the show. Songs range from topics like reality TV confessionals to Twitter.
Alter and Moses started working on the show right as reality TV was taking over the networks. They wanted it to be like “The Bachelor” met “Survivor.”
“It’s a love show but you also have to jump out of a plane or run an obstacle course or drill through a wall in order to find love,” Moses said in an interview with WABE's Lois Reitzes.
