November 21, 1963. On the night before their deployment to Vietnam, three young Marines set out for one final boys’ night of debauchery. But when Corporal Eddie Birdlace meets Rose, the unassuming and idealistic waitress he enlists to win a cruel bet, she rewrites the rules of the game and opens his eyes to what really matters in life.

Based on the 1991 movie of the same name starring River Phoenix, Dogfight premièred Off-Broadway in 2012, winning the Lucille Lortel Award for Outstanding Musical and nominated for 5 Outer Critics Circle and 2 Drama Desk Awards.


Come and meet writers Benj Pasek, Justin Paul and Peter Duchan at an exclusive post show Q&A. They'll talk about their work and answer your questions. A not to be missed evening.

Entry to the event is FREE with a valid ticket for that night's performance.
