From Lyric Arts Resident Director Scott Ford
Good suspense leaves us heavily invested in plot and character. We hate it and love it at the same time. We vicariously experience danger and anxiety while looking forward to the satisfaction of the eventual resolution for our hero.

About The Spitfire Grill
Percy Talbott, a feisty parolee, follows her dreams from the pages of an old travel book to a small town in Wisconsin and finds a place for herself working at Hannah’s Spitfire Grill. It is for sale, but there are no takers for the only eatery in the depressed town. Newcomer Percy suggests to Hannah that she raffle it off. Entry fees are one hundred dollars and the best essay on why one would want the grill wins. Soon, mail is arriving by the wheelbarrow full and things are definitely cookin’.
The New Yorker called it “touching and memorable,” while Variety proclaims “Poignant and spine-chilling! A show with universal appeal! The score is exciting, infectious, and lively!” This soulful and transcendent musical is full of soaring melodies, sure to send you home feeling warm all over.
