The Spitfire Grill Puts Women in the Spotlight
The Spitfire Grill is an incredibly heartfelt folk musical about redemption, but more than anything, it’s a profoundly human story. It’s also a universal experience for people because we all understand longing, yearning, wanting more, and not getting what we want.
Best described as a play with music rather than a straight folk musical, The Spitfire Grill, written by James Valcq, pulls at the heartstrings of its audience. The two-act play is a musical adaptation of the 1996 film by the same title, which puts women in the spotlight.
Since its world premiere in 2000 at the George Street Playhouse in New Brunswick, New Jersey, and then the off-Broadway production on September 7, 2001, The Spitfire Grill has been produced more than 600 times throughout the country and the world, including countries such as England, Scotland, Germany, Japan, Canada, The Netherlands and Australia, among others. And so, how fitting that as Palm Beach Dramaworks decided to bring the first musical to its main stage, it chose this world renown musical as part of its subscription season.
