Based on the 1996 film by Lee David Zlatoff, “The Spitfire Grill” tells the story of a young woman just released from prison who decides to start her life over in a rural Wisconsin town. There she starts working at a diner and builds relationships in the community, eventually helping to rejuvenate the town. The show’s music, with score by James Valcq and lyrics by Fred Alley, features a mixture of country, folk and Broadway-style ballads.
