The hauntingly beautiful musical, Dogfight, by Pasek and Paul (Oscar winners for La La Land, composers of the Broadway hit Dear Evan Hansen) and Peter Duchan, was praised by countless critics and nominated for numerous awards, winning the Lucille Lortel Award for Best Musical. Based on the 1991 Warner Bros. film, this romantic and heartbreaking theatrical journey is studded with impressive songs and a genuine and charming soul.
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 whom he enlists to win a cruel bet with his fellow recruits, she rewrites the rules of the game and teaches him the power of love and compassion.
