NYU Langone’s Medical Center is sponsoring the current revival of critically acclaimed play, Bill W. and Dr. Bob at the SoHo Playhouse in NYC, along with the Psychiatry Division of Substance Abuse for their “Initiative on Alcoholism and its Treatment.” Written and co-produced by Dr. Stephen Bergman (pen name: Samuel Shem) the play recounts the story of the two men who founded Alcoholics Anonymous. For the first time ever, the show will be presented in both English and Spanish, sparking the dialogue about addiction to a wider audience, but also creating educational and entertaining programming for Latino audiences in a medium that typically lacks ethnic diversity. The mission of this project is both to jump start conversations about the disease, educate the public, and celebrate recovery for all those who have overcome addiction. 50% of all tickets will be given away to those in recovery as well as NYU medical staff, faculty and students who are working tirelessly on diagnosis, treatment, and sobriety sustainability methods.
