Description

A story of the loss of innocence for a soldier, his date, and all of the United Sates.

November 21, 1963. On the eve of their deployment to Vietnam, three young Marines take part in a “dogfight” – a cruel game on the women they invite to the party, wherein the soldier who brings the least attractive girl wins. But when Corporal Eddie Birdlace meets Rose, she turns out to be more than he bargained for as she rewrites the rules of the game. A lesson in compassion, Dogfight begins as a rousing song and dance adventure and ends as an intimate story about finding the beauty and comfort of love.

Music and lyrics by Benj Pasek & Justin Paul. Book by Peter Duchan. Based on the Warner Bros. film and screenplay by Bob Comfort
