We are very pleased to announced that we will be recording and releasing the Original Cast Recording of the musical, DOGFIGHT later this spring. The show – which debuted Off-Broadway at Second Stage Theatre last year – features music and lyrics by Benj Pasek and Justin Paul (A Christmas Story), a book by Peter Duchan (IFC Films’ Breaking Upwards) and directed by two-time Tony Award winner Joe Mantello (Wicked, Glengarry Glen Ross).
Sign up now for our DOGFIGHT email list to get updates when release dates and pre-orders are available.
When the show opened in July 2012, it was praised for its “melodic grace” by The New York Times and called “tuneful and engaging” by The Hollywood Reporter and an “intimate little heartbreaker of beguiling freshness” by Newsday.
The recording will feature Annaleigh Ashford, Becca Ayers, Nick Blaemire, Steven Booth, Dierdre Friel, Adam Halpin, F. Michael Haynie, Derek Klena, Lindsay Mendez, James Moye and Josh Segarra. The album is being produced by Kurt Deutsch and Lawrence Manchester.
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 is based on the Warner Bros. film and screenplay by Bob Comfort.
