Local Theatre Highlight – The Spitfire Grill

The Spitfire Grill is an American musical with music and book by James Valcq and lyrics and book by Rachel Sheinkin. It 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

A feisty parolee named Percy Talbott follows her dreams, based on a page from an old travel book, to a small (fictional) town in Wisconsin that one of its inhabitants calls “a place for leaving, not for coming to.”  Arriving in Gilead, Percy reports to the local Sheriff, Joe Sutter, who leads her through the deserted streets to a ramshackle diner called the Spitfire Grill, run by a crusty old widow, Hannah Ferguson, who has a bad hip and sharp tongue. Joe persuades Hannah to take Percy on board and give her work as a waitress.

In the face of all the gossip and Hannah’s constant haranguing, Percy begins to wonder whether she made a mistake in coming to Gilead, and soon finds herself, helping out the Spitfire. She is joined at the Spitfire by Caleb’s wife Shelby, an excellent cook. In the heat of the kitchen the two women are drawn together.

The Spitfire Grill has been for sale for ten years with no takers. Percy proposes a way for Hannah to get rid of the Spitfire and make some money at the same time. At first Hannah resists, but slowly, something about the craziness of the idea convinces her that it just might work.
