AN OFFICER AND A GENTLEMAN, based on the 1982 Academy® Award-winning film starring Richard Gere, begins touring North America with a premiere in the fall of 2020.  Featuring the Grammy® Award-winning, #1 hit single “Up Where We Belong,” AN OFFICER AND A GENTLEMAN is a breathtaking production that celebrates triumph over adversity and includes one of the most iconic and romantic endings ever portrayed on screen.

Based on the original screenplay by Douglas Day Stewart whose personal experience as a Naval Officer Candidate inspired one of the highest grossing films of all time, the book for the musical is a new adaptation by multiple Tony AwardⓇ nominee Dick Scanlan (THOROUGHLY MODERN MILLIE, EVERYDAY RAPTURE), based on the original book by Douglas Day Stewart and Sharleen Cooper Cohen. The musical is directed by Dick Scanlan with choreography by Broadway sensation Patricia Wilcox (MOTOWN, A NIGHT WITH JANIS JOPLIN). Dan Lipton (THE BAND’S VISIT, THE LAST SHIP) serves as the music supervisor/arranger for the production, featuring a score based on the 1980s catalogue of music that gave voice to a generation.

Zack Mayo’s got smarts and a body built for US Navy pilot boot camp, but he also has too much swagger… until he meets a drill sergeant who’s determined to drill his arrogance out of him.  Zack finds comfort in the arms of a local factory girl. But it isn’t until tragedy befalls a fellow candidate that Zack learns the importance of love and friendship, and finds the courage to be his best self and win the heart of the woman he loves.
