Rice Theatre and Rice Players present Dogfight
The Rice University Theatre Program and the Rice Players presents Dogfight, a musical with music by Benji Pasek and Justin Paul (Dear Evan Hansen, La La Land) and story by Peter Duchan.
It's the evening of Nov. 21, 1963, when three young Marines set out for one final boys' night of debauchery, partying and maybe a little trouble ahead of their upcoming deployment to a small but growing conflict in Southeast Asia. But when Cpl. 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.
