Book by Peter Duchan

Oct. 23 – Nov. 22, 2014

Directed by Mathew Wright

Dogfight, based on the 1991 Warner Bros. film, tells the story of 3 Marines in 1963 who, on the eve of their deployment to Vietnam, look forward to their last evening of fun and debauchery. A romantic and heartbreaking story, Eddie Birdlace enlists a sweet awkward waitress, Rose Fenny, to join him at the party. Rewriting the rules of the game, Rose teaches young Eddie the meaning of compassion.

With music and lyrics by Benj Pasek and Justin Paul (EDGES, JAMES AND THE GIANT PEACH, A CHRISTMAS STORY) and Peter Duchan (STU FOR SILVERTON), the show won critical acclaim in New York and received the Lucille Lortel Award for Best Musical in 2013.

Seattle Premiere, 2010 Olivier Award Winner

Directed by Valerie Curtis-Newton

On the re-imagined eve of his assassination, we meet Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. weary, restless, and in a lonely motel room. Visited by a mysterious young woman and forced to confront the meaning of his life, his destiny, and his own humanity, we are given a glimpse into the person behind his revered leadership. Gripping, daring, and powerful, this play melds humanness with legacy, and mortality with spirituality. Your heart will be touched and your soul stirred.
