Stage 62 proudly presents the Pittsburgh-area premiere of Dogfight, the critically acclaimed and hauntingly beautiful musical from the creative team behind Broadway hits Dear Evan Hansen and A Christmas Story and movie musicals La La Land and The Greatest Showman. Based on the 1991 Warner Brothers film, Dogfight takes audiences on a heartbreaking yet ultimately uplifting theatrical journey that stays with you long after the performance.
In November 1963, on the eve of their deployment to a small but growing conflict in Southeast Asia, three young Marines set out for one final night of debauchery, partying, and maybe a little trouble. A “dogfight” ensues: who can find the ugliest girl in town and bring her to a party where she will be judged? When Corporal Eddie Birdlace finds his winner in Rose, an awkward and idealistic waitress, she rewrites the rules of the game and teaches him the power of love and compassion.
