In this musical adaptation of the 1991 film starring River Phoenix and Lili Taylor, it's 1963, and three marines are in San Francisco, just out of basic training and about to ship out to Vietnam. It's their last day stateside, and they've decided to spend it in the cruelest way possible—in a game called Dogfight. The rules are simple. The guys ante up fifty bucks each to play; the pot goes to the one who brings the ugliest date to the party that night. Yes, it's a degrading, humiliating experience for the women, and yes, someone's going to get hurt. But all bets are off when one of the marines decides he isn't playing anymore. Timothy E. Locklear directs in Raleigh. —Byron Woods
