Dogfight, based on the 1991 Warner Bros. film, tells the story of 3 Marines in 1963 who, on the eve of their deployment to Vietnam, look forward to their last evening of fun and debauchery. A romantic and heartbreaking story, Eddie Birdlace enlists a sweet awkward waitress, Rose Fenny, to join him at the party. Rewriting the rules of the game, Rose teaches young Eddie the meaning of compassion
With music and lyrics by Benj Pasek and Justin Paul (EDGES, JAMES AND THE GIANT PEACH, A CHRISTMAS STORY) and Peter Duchan (STU FOR SILVERTON), the show won critical acclaim in New York and received the Lucille Lortel Award for Best Musical in 2013. **strong language and mature themes
