Mozart in the Jungle is a good education for teens and above looking to venture into a career in the performing arts workd
Mozart in the Jungle is very eye-opening, loosely based on the book with the same title, about the situations and personalities encountered in the world of professional musicianship. It is full of egos, full of competition (and therefore conniving characters), full of temptation (sex and drugs, which entice not everyone, but definitely a potential pitfall), and full of disappointment and rejection (except for the lucky few). I think any high schooler contemplating a career as a musician or performer should watch this show. Not everyone will have the breadth of experiences depicted in the 4 seasons of this show, but behind every diva and salty exterior is always a real human, and the show manages to capture the humanity of almost every character in the show.
