A young soldier learns the power of compassion when he plays a cruel joke on an unsuspecting girl.

The hauntingly beautiful musical Dogfight by Pasek and Paul (Edges, James And The Giant Peach, A Christmas Story) and Peter Duchan, was praised by countless critics and nominated for numerous awards and won the Lucille Lortel Award for Best Musical. Based on the 1991 Warner Brothers film, Dogfight takes audiences on a romantic and heartbreaking theatrical journey that stays with you long after the performance.

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 love and compassion.

Studded with impressive songs, an unexpected love affair, and a genuine and charming soul, Dogfight is a perfect way to show off your strong male talent and a unique opportunity for theatres looking to challenge and inspire their audiences.
