"Medicine the Musical" follows a group of first year medical students as they tenaciously fight their way through a grueling first year, grappling with their lives, loves, and the rigors of an education in medicine.

Don't see it if You want an original story. It’s basically the first season of Grey’s set to music.
See it if you want to see a currently flawed show that should be Broadway bound
Don't see it if third preview had exceptional number of technical errors and talented, but a not ready for prime time cast, turns you off.
See it if You like black box theatre productions, with decent staging and production value, which needs work, but, is totally workable. Singing is ok,
Don't see it if Could be better. Some songs were catchy, others not so much. Some actors needed diction lessons, while singing. But, it's quirky and hopeful
See it if You like musicals,young cast with amazing voices.The show about the first year struggles of med students,bullying, personal drama,misfit ppl
Don't see it if You do not like musicals, not a fan of cliche story, predictable ending, no surprises

See it if You enjoy well written pieces about medical students and their struggles
Don't see it if You don’t enjoy musicals, bullying and attempted suicide
See it if If you like medical shows and musicals, you’ll love this. Also if you like to support young talent.
Don't see it if You don’t like to hear women singing who clearly need voice lessons. I got bad chills up my spine whenever Tiff and Christina sang.
See it if you’re in the mood for a fairly short and harmless but otherwise forgettable musical about first-year med students.
Don't see it if you’re expecting “Scrubs.” Aside from a few chuckles, it doesn’t strive for comedy so much as earnest portrayals of med school experiences.
See it if you want to have fun with a medical romp through the rock score of first year medical students.
Don't see it if you have difficulty enjoying a show that is somewhat cliche but still enjoyable.
See it if an original medical concept musical with some peppy songs, enjoyable choreography, occasional humor, and a mixed-talent cast is enough
Don't see it if you also desire a strong book, lyrics, or character development
See it if You enjoy considering (or remembering) some of the key issues that arise for those launching medical careers. You enjoy terrific dancing.
Don't see it if You expect great writing. You need comfortable seats and an intermission.
See it if You want to see something new & vibrant & unusual that deals with serious topics in mental health & race relations but has dancing corpses.
Don't see it if You want a linear plot line or storylines that really finish for each individual character. Or if you’re triggered by content like suicide.
See it if you like musicals and stories about students with positive, inspiring messages
Don't see it if you only want to see completely original material. The topics in this show have been done many times, but songs are new..
See it if Like musicals based on student experiences - this one 1st year medical students
Don't see it if Some bullying & subject matter on death
See it if You are interested in the subject matter and aren't too picky about the quality of the songs or the plot.
Don't see it if You are expecting the music to be as good as the music in successful Broadway rock musicals like Rent or Chess. The book just isn't there.
See it if iI you're looking to see an upbeat show about med students trying to make their way in life! A must see for every doctor or doctor-to-be!
Don't see it if You are a theater "purist" and are not comfortable with content that sits "outside the box."
