The reality of reality TV – the musical

From Upbeat, 1:50 pm on 27 November 2017

Reality TV shows become a musical reality for kiwi composer Chris Williams.​The Quest pokes fun at reality talent shows, taking the audience backstage to experience what it’s really like fighting for survival on the show, the struggle the contestants face and how they present differently in front of the camera. 22 original songs make up the score, with Nick Braae musically directing the show that opens in Hamilton this week.
