Dogfight: A New Musical - August 2019

From the musical minds of Pasek and Paul (Dear Evan Hansen and The Greatest Showman) comes a haunting retelling of the 1990s film of the same name.

It's November 21, 1963. On the eve of their deployment to Vietnam, 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.


Directed by Billy Surges and Tony Calkins
Music Direction by Daven Taba
