Winner of the prestigious 2013 Lucille Lortel Award for Outstanding Musical! Set on the eve of the Kennedy assassination on November 21, 1963, Dogfight chronicles the story of newly inducted Marine, Eddie Birdlace. Before shipping out to Vietnam, Birdlace and his friends make a bet: Each man contributes $50 to a pot, and whoever brings the ugliest date that night to a bar wins the prize. But when Eddie meets Rose, an awkward and idealistic waitress as his date, she rewrites the rules of the game and teaches him the power of compassion. Dogfight is a musical adaptation of the 1991 indie film starring River Phoenix and Lilly Taylor.

FULL GALLOP


August 9-31
Studio Theatre

by Mary Louise Wilson and Mark Hampton

Sponsored in part, by The Town of Addison

As editor of Harper's Bazaar and Vogue magazines, and as a member of the International Cafe Society, Diana Vreeland chronicled the extraordinary people and events of her time. Full Gallop is a portrait of this remarkable woman at a turning point in her life. The one-woman play, starring Diana Sheehan and directed by Terry Martin, is set in August 1971 at Diana Vreeland’s Park Avenue apartment. She has just returned home to New York after four months in Europe --- a trip she took after being fired from Vogue magazine. She throws an impromptu dinner party in the hope that a wealthy friend who is invited will bankroll her in starting a magazine of her own. Other friends, however, attempt to persuade her to take a job at the famed Metropolitan Museum of Art. In her distinctive style, once she decides in which direction her life will move, she goes at it "full gallop.”
