Description

The Spitfire Grill is an American musical with music and book by James Valcq and lyrics and book by Fred Alley, and is based on the 1996 film of the same name by Lee David Zlotoff.

The off-Broadway production by Playwrights Horizons began previews at the Duke Theatre on 42nd Street on September 7, 2001 and concluded its scheduled run on October 14, 2001. It won the Richard Rodgers Production Award, administered by the American Academy of Arts and Letters.

The town of Gilead is facing the closure of the local quarry, the over-harvest of local timber and the realignment of a main highway away from the town.  The “Spitfire Grill” finds itself in the centre of a community that has stagnated.  Each town member wishes for a return to the ‘good old days’. The musical depicts the journey of a young woman, Percy Talbott, just released from prison, who decides to start her life anew in Gilead. She participates in a journey within the town through its own changes.  But is that change good? How do people react?  And how will Percy deal with the changes in herself?
