Revival Theatre Company presents the Midwest premiere of a musical based on the 1991 film starring River Phoenix and Lili Taylor.
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. Dogfight carries the audience through a thunderous musical journey of unexpected love, loss, and brotherhood.
According to the Associated Press, “Dogfight is something special! Studded with impressive songs, an unexpected love affair, and a genuine and charming soul.”
