About the show

Eagle Theatre presents Pasek and Paul's ("Dear Evan Hansen") compassionate musical, which centers around a young marine and the idealistic waitress he enlists to win a cruel bet with his fellow recruits. More…

From the show:

Compassion takes center stage in this beautifully romantic and hauntingly heartbreaking musical. 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 bit of trouble. But, when Corporal Eddie Birdlace meets Rose, an awkward and idealistic waitress whom he enlists to win a cruel bet with his fellow recruits, she rewrites the rules of the game and teaches him the power of love and compassion.

Based on the 1991 Warner Brothers film, Dogfight is packed with an unstoppable pop score, an unexpected love affair, and a genuine and charming message that takes audiences to new heights.
