Redwood City Players brings “Dogfight,” a “hauntingly beautiful musical” to town this month.
You might not recognize the songwriting team of Benj Pasek and Justin Paul for this work, but odds are, you know some of their other creations. They wrote songs for “La La Land,” and for the musical “Dear Evan Hansen” and “James and the Giant Peach.”
“Dogfight” tells the story of a young Marine, about to ship out to Vietnam from San Francisco in the early ‘60s – and lessons he learns – the hard way – about love, tenderness and the change that’s coming in the roles of men and women.
(And yes by the way, if you remember the ‘90s movie of the same name, this musical is based on that movie.)
Shows are Friday and Saturday nights at 8, with a Sunday matinee at 3pm, each weekend through the end of the month – at the American Legion, Post 105 – 651 El Camino Real.
Tickets are available through Eventbrite.
