The Spitfire Grill
Jan. 28 – Feb. 18, 2023
Music and book by James Valq. Lyrics and book by Fred Alley. Based on the award-winning 1996 film by Lee David Zlotoff. Winner of the Richard Rogers Production Award for new musicals.
Percy Talbott is a woman with a past looking for a fresh start. She finds herself in rural Gilead, Wisconsin, working at THE SPITFIRE GRILL, but learns that being the new kid in town can be its own form of prison. Through determination, grit, and remaining open to possibilities, Percy revitalizes the grill and, in turn, the community. Debuting Off-Broadway in 2001, The Spitfire Grill struck a powerful emotional chord with both audiences and critics. Two decades later, this heartfelt musical’s message of about healing the wounds of the past, finding joy in the present, and optimism for the future still resonates.
Singin’ In The Rain

The “Greatest Movie Musical of All Time” is faithfully and lovingly adapted by Broadway legends Comden and Green from their original award-winning screenplay in Singin’ in the Rain.
