July 16 marks the anniversary of the original Off-Broadway production of Dogfight, which premiered at Second Stage Theatre in 2012. The musical, written by future Oscar- and Tony-winning songwriters Benj Pasek and Justin Paul (Dear Evan Hansen) with a book by Peter Duchan, is an adaptation of the 1991 Nancy Savoca film of the same name and was directed by Tony winner Joe Mantello.

Derek Klena (Anastasia) starred as Eddie Birdlace, a U.S. Marine who gets pulled into a cruel competition by his fellow Marines to see who can invite the ugliest date to a party. Birdlace meets Rose Fenny (Tony winner Lindsay Mendez), a shy waitress he invites but later begins to fall for.
