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. Winner of the Lucille Lortel Award for Best Musical and praised by countless critics, Dogfight takes audiences on a romantic and heartbreaking theatrical journey that stays with you long after the performance.
Benj Pasek & Justin Paul are the Tony-nominated composers behind Dogfight, a Best New Musical nominee for the Drama League, and Lucille Lortel and Outer Critics Circle award winners for Outstanding Musical. Benj and Justin also received an Outer Critics Circle Best Score nomination for their work on the show.
