Second Stage - Tony Kiser Theatre
305 West 43rd Street New York, NY 10036

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. Two-time Tony® Award winner Joe Mantello (Wicked, Other Desert Cities, Assassins) directs this world premiere musical.
