Second Stage's Tony Kiser Theatre, 305 W. 43rd St.
In this world premiere new musical based on the Warner Bros. film and screenplay by Bob Comfort, 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. Call or visit website for playing schedule.
