Dogfights can be one of three things. 1) A close range aerial battle between fighter aircrafts. 2) An illegal form of entertainment consisting of pitting dogs against one another. Or 3) A game where soldiers on the eve of deployment compete to bring the ugliest girl on a group date. Dogfight, a musical set in 1963, deals mostly with the third definition.
Frontman Eddie meets ingenue Rose, and things go as well as you can imagine considering the circumstances. But Rose rewrites the dogfighting rules and teaches the young Marines about a more compassionate and caring way of life. Perfect for boys going off to war, right? After a stunted, rocky start, Rose and Eddie’s relationship blossoms, spanning miles and hardships and everything in between.
