In collaboration with the Beck Center for the Arts

This hauntingly beautiful musical was praised by countless critics and nominated for nearly every award available including winning the Lucille Lortel Award for Best Musical in 2013.  Based on the 1991 Warner Brothers film, Dogfight takes audiences on a romantic and heartbreaking theatrical journey.  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.
