1963: On the eve of their deployment to Vietnam, a group of young American Marines devise a cruel bet. The rules are simple: pay $50 to throw a party and the man with the ugliest date wins the pot! But when Eddie chooses Rose as his date she rewrites the rules of the game and his last night turns into a lesson on the power of compassion and kindness. With soaring music from Pasek and Paul this hauntingly beautiful show is based on the 1991 Nancy Savoca film of the same name.
