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 he enlists to win a cruel bet with his fellow recruits, she rewrites the rules of the game and teaches him the power of compassion.
Based on the Warner Bros. film and screenplay by Bob Comfort, Dogfight features music and lyrics by Benj Pasek and Justin Paul, a book by Peter Duchan, choreography by two-time Tony nominee Christopher Gattelli, and direction by two-time Tony Award winner Joe Mantello.
