This is a Kickstarter campaign to raise money to produce Medicine the Musical, a unique musical that brings the world of medicine and medical school to the public in an accessible and entertaining way. It appeals to anyone who has ever worked hard for a dream.
The ultimate scale of the production will depend on the final amount of funds raised, and can be anything from a Workshop production ($20,000) to a full first-class off-Broadway production ($300,000+)
Set to a dynamic rock score, Medicine the Musical follows a group of first year medical students as they struggle with their lives, loves, and the rigors of their education. It is a unique platform with which to share with the public something about the world of medicine, including the pressures and frustrations felt by doctors and medical students.
What started as the seed of an idea while I was in medical school has now matured into a full-fledged musical production. Following on a successful staged concert reading in April 2017 (see the video), we are now determined to bring this show to a New York off-Broadway production.
This is your chance to support the arts in a meaningful way and bring this exciting project to the stage. See the show, meet the cast, attend the opening night party, and receive lots of cool theater swag.
The full video from the staged reading is above, and here are links to individual songs.
Risks and challenges
Producing a first-class show is like starting a small business. We need to do everything--book a theater, audition cast, create scenery, choreography, marketing, and more. Sure, we can stumble somewhere along the way, but we will get the show up. The nature of the final production will depend on the amount of funding raised.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
