Playwrights Horizons begins its 2001-2002 season with The Spitfire Grill, the New York premiere of a new musical with book and music by James Valcq and book and lyrics by Fred Alley. When Percy Talbott, a mysterious young woman with an uncertain past, becomes a resident of tiny Gilead, Wisconsin, the town welcomes her with suspicion and distrust. Determined to start anew, Percy soon devises a scheme to breathe life into the dying, backwater county and bring solace to a grieving mother. But its going to take more than good will, she finds, to overcome the unchanging ways of Gilead, a town still haunted by tragedies of the past. Based on the film by Lee David Zlotoff. $15.00 Student Rush tickets offered at the Box Office Only. 1/2 hour prior to curtain - with valid ID - 2 per person - Subject to Availability!
