It’s November 21, 1963. On the eve of their deployment to a small but growing conflict in Southeast Asia, three young Marines set out for one final boys’ night of debauchery, partying and maybe a little trouble. But when Corporal Eddie Birdlace meets Rose, an awkward and idealistic waitress, she rewrites the rules of the game.
Based on the 1991 Warner Brothers film, and studded with impressive songs by Benj Pasek and Justin Paul (La La Land, Dear Evan Hansen, James and the Giant Peach, Edges, and A Christmas Story), DOGFIGHT offers audiences the winning combination of a great musical score, an unexpected love affair and a genuine soul. This romantic and heartbreaking theatrical journey stays with you long after the performance.
