Based on the 1991 film starring River Phoenix and Lili Taylor, Dogfight takes place in 1963, as three young Marines enjoy one last night of debauchery before their deployment to Vietnam. Part of their "fun" includes a bet on who can pick up the ugliest date. But when one of them meets Rose, an awkward but idealistic waitress, she changes the game on him and teaches him the power of compassion. A thunderous musical journey of unexpected love, loss and brotherhood, Dogfight received the 2013 Lucille Lortel Award for Best Musical and features music and lyrics by the award-winning duo Benj Pasek & Justin Paul (A Christmas Story: The Musical!). Check out San Francisco Playhouse's powerful production of Dogfight.
