Medicine: The Musical theater and performance dates announced

The physician who composed the musical confirms a 14-show run in November.

Written and composed by a practicing dermatologist, Medicine: The Musical follows a group of first-year med students as they navigate challenges in medical education and their personal lives.

The musical will be performed at HERE theater in Manhattan from Nov. 3-18, 2018.

The musical’s writer, Michael Ehrenreich, MD, previously told The DO in an email that he hopes the musical will present medical school in a novel and accessible way to the general public.

“It’s not quite realistic—it is a musical after all—but I want people to get a sense of the pressure involved and how hard people work, and get the public to view doctors as people too,” he wrote. “Humanizing medicine goes both ways.”
