Music and Lyrics by Benj Pasek and Justin Paul
Book by Peter Duchan

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

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.

From the up and coming composers Benj Pasek and Justin Paul (Edges, A Christmas Story, James and the Giant Peach, SMASH), Dogfight’s score is a delightful mix of pop, rock, folk and traditional musical theatre, and according to Time Out New York it is “easily the most delicate, surprising, musically satisfying score since Spring Awakening”.

Dogfight is based on the 1991 Warner Brother's film of the same name starring River Phoenix and Lili Taylor.
