So we go for broke today!
Before creating the Tony-winning sensation Dear Evan Hansen, writers Pasek and Paul delivered this heartbreaking and beautiful musical. Based on the 1991 movie, this emotional journey depicts the blissful ignorance of youth, compassion in the face of cruelty and the ability to find true inner strength and acceptance despite the brutality of life and war.
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.
Studded with impressive songs, an unexpected love affair and a genuine and charming soul, Dogfight has been praised by countless critics and nominated for numerous awards, winning the Lucille Lortel Award for Best Musical.
"Easily the most delicate, surprising, musically satisfying score since Spring Awakening. You gotta hear Dogfight sing!"
