A new intern whose life's dream is to become an ER doctor and save lives, Justin Marks, M.D. has one night to save his career. Despite excelling in the classroom, his deficient bedside manner failed to land him a spot in a residency program. Now, forced to compete with his nemesis Kyle for the one Emergency Medicine spot left in the country, both candidates battle in an overnight shift under the watchful eye of program director Dr. Sharp. Amid forgotten patients, confiscating foreign bodies, and unearthly phone calls from Jesus, Emergency is filled with energy and compassion, lovable characters, and powerful and catchy melodies.

Tickets are $23.00 (plus fees). For tickets and information, visit New York Theater Festival SUMMERFEST.

The runtime is 90 minutes with no intermission.
