Description

Musical Revue / Cabaret

Comedy

Doctors and patients get a dose of rib tickling comic medicine in sketches and songs about all things medical. Characters include the hillbilly organ donor who happened to hiccup and totaled his pick up, a hacking smoker who loves his cigarettes, and a couple who live in an iron lung and every night go "bing, bang, boom!" There is even a "Hymn to the H.M.O." A number about the pain of death ("I Loved My Father More Than I Knew") and the joy of new life ("Nine Long Months Ago") make this a revue that touches the heart as well as the funny bone.
