DOGFIGHT Begins Run at Lesher Center for the Arts on 9/5

Dogfight is the Off-Broadway smash hit musical Produced by "OMG, I Love That Show!" Productions playing a limited 3-week engagement from September 5th through 21st at the Lesher Center for the Arts.

Set in the fall of 1963, Dogfight follows three young Marines on the eve of their deployment to Vietnam who set out for one last night of debauchery in San Francisco. But when Corporal Eddie Birdlace meets Rose, an awkward and idealistic waitress, he enlists her to win a cruel bet with his fellow recruits, she rewrites the rules of the game and teaches him the power of compassion. Based on the 1991 film of the same name starring River Phoenix and Lili Taylor, Dogfight carries the audience through a thunderous musical journey of unexpected love, loss, and brotherhood.

The cast features: Jordon Lee Bridges (Eddie Birdlace), Elizabeth Curtis (Rose), Tyler Costin (Bernstein), Matt Provencal (Boland), Kathryn Hart (Marcy), Sam Faustine (Fector), Jacob Judd (Stephens), Tom Deans-Flegel (Gibbs), Lauren Rosi (Mama), Mariah Heath (Ruth Two Bears) and Glen Riggs (Lounge Singer).

Jeffrey returns to the Lesher Center after directing last fall's production of Tarzan for CCMT. Other Bay Area directing credits include In the Heights (Broadway by the Bay), RENT (Pacific Coast Repertory Theatre & CCMT) and Little Shop of Horrors (CCMT).
