BETTER TO LIVE IS A GRITTY AND UPLIFTING LOOK at the travails of the college experience and the musical-sketch comedy performance that’s saving lives.  In this short documentary, drama majors tackle complex issues including rape, anxiety, cutting and suicide as they build The Reality Show for 5000 freshmen at one of America’s most iconic theaters, Madison Square Garden.
