Right now in D.C., everyone and their theatergoing mother is raving about Benj Pasek and Justin Paul’s new musical Dear Evan Hansen, currently playing at Arena Stage. After the show departs the District for an Off-Broadway stage, educate yourself on the pair’s previous work, Dogfight, which opens at the Keegan Theatre. Based on the 1991 film of the same name, this musical tells the story of three young Marines in the early ’60s. On the verge of deploying to Vietnam, the trio plans one more night of debauchery in San Francisco and makes a nasty bet to see who can find the ugliest date to bring to the party—the titular “dogfight.” This coming-of-age musical has a lot of heart and hilarity as it explores the timeless quandary of whether bros should value one another before—well, you know.
