Description:   The Black Ivy Alumni League and the Casting Director for NBC's The Marriage Ref Sandra Philippeaux (Columbia *99), invite you to a live studio taping of the show, followed by a fun mixer at The Hudson Hotel where all attendees can mingle and married couples can audition for the show if they'd like!

The Marriage Ref is a new prime-time show executive produced by Jerry Seinfeld and Ellen Rakieten (formerly the executive producer of The Oprah Winfrey Show) where married life takes center stage as celebrities, comedians and sports stars candidly comment, judge and decide who's right and who's wrong in real-life disputes between real-life spouses.
