About The Show

Justin Marks, M.D. has one night to save his career. Justin is a new intern whose life’s dream is to become an ER doctor and save lives. Despite excelling in the classroom, Justin struggled in his medical school rotations due to his inability to relate to his patients. His focus on science and research, and his dependence on his ipad led to his being left off every hospital’s want list and failing to land a spot in a residency program. Now, he must fight for his career, as he is forced to compete with his med school nemesis Kyle for the one Emergency Medicine spot left in the country. Both candidates have been asked to work one overnight shift to allow the program director, Dr. Sharp, to choose between the two. Emergency is a modern-day American musical that follows Dr. Marks through this 12-hour shift and allows the audience to experience the laughs, love, happiness, and tears that a night in the ER can bring. He is mentored by Dr. Hill, the seasoned leader of the ER, and is antagonized by the charge nurse Carla, who has lost her compassion and also happens to be Kyle’s aunt. Despite the mentorship by Dr. Hill, Justin finds himself struggling with the same problems that plagued him in medical school.

Emergency is a spectacular new musical that has a literal pulse - a life all its own that explodes onto the stage to cure its audience of all possible ailments; as they say, laughter truly is the best medicine, and this show is nothing short of just that. Winner of the Ken Davenport Inner Circle Grant and truly the perfect blend of comedy and the kind of drama that puts life into perspective, Emergency wowed its audiences straight through to a standing ovation, and has undoubtedly left an impression on this critic's mind. ...the cast of Emergency pours its collective heart into every twist of comedy and trauma this show has to offer. From the songs to the choreography, Emergency is just a well-rounded production that is like a big fish in a small pond. Giving their all to make the audience's collective pulse quicken with each moment of laughter or anticipation, there really wasn't a dull moment to be had.
