Music and Lyrics by BENJ PASEK & JUSTIN PAUL       Book by PETER DUCHAN

Based on the Warner Bros. film and screenplay by Bob Comfort 

The whole damn world might change tomorrow.  So we go for broke today.


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 boy’s night of debauchery, partying and maybe a little trouble.  But when Corporal Eddie Birdlace (Alex Woodward) meets Rose (Olivia Charalambous), an awkward and idealistic waitress he enlists to win a cruel bet with this fellow recruits, she rewrites the rules of the game and teaches him the power of compassion.


Based on the 1991 cult movie of the same name starring River Phoenix, DOGFIGHT premiered Off-Broadway in 2012 where it won the Lucille Lortel Outstanding Musical Award and was nominated for numerous Outer Critics Circle and Drama Desk Awards.


‘Easily the most delicate, surprising, musically satisfying score since Spring Awakening.’

Time Out New York


‘Tuneful…Mr Pasek and Mr Paul have written a winning low-key date song finding melodic grace in romantic awkwardness’
