It’s November 21, 1963. On the eve of their deployment to Vietnam, three young Marines embark on one final boys’ night out. 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. This 2013 musical mixes doo-wop, country-rock and the lyricism of Sondheim in a dynamic show critics called "poignant, funny and totally endearing."

Note: This production contains adult language and the use of gunfire

Dogfight is presented through special arrangement with Music Theatre International (MTI).
