Since it opened Off-Broadway in 2001 at Playwrights Horizons, The Spitfire Grill has become one of the most often-produced new American musicals. Based on the award-winning film by Lee David Zlotoff, the musical depicts the journey of a young woman just released from prison who decides to start her life anew in a rural Wisconsin town. She precipitates a journey within the town itself toward its own tenuous reawakening. The folk and bluegrass tinged score is unlike that for any other musical.
“THE COUNTRY-TINGED SCORE FITS LIKE A FAVORITE FLANNEL SHIRT. LIKE THE COFFEE CAKE SERVED AT THE DINER, ‘THE SPITFIRE GRILL’ ACTUALLY LEAVES YOU WANTING A SECOND HELPING.”
-Mark Sullivan, Billboard Magazine

The Wedding Singer – Musical
Directed by Sylvia Haynie and Laura Voss
Choreographed by Jenny Morris
July 18 – 27, 2014
Box Office opens July 14
With a score that pays loving homage to the pop songs of the 1980s, this bright and breezy musical comedy takes us back to a time when hair was big, greed was good, collars were up, and a wedding singer might just be the coolest guy in the room. It’s 1985 and rock-star wannabe Robbie Hart is New Jersey’s favorite wedding singer. He’s the life of the party, until his own fiancée leaves him at the altar. Shot through the heart, Robbie makes every wedding as disastrous as his own. Enter Julia, a winsome waitress who wins his affection. As luck would have it, Julia is about to be married to a Wall Street shark, and unless Robbie can pull off the performance of a decade, the girl of his dreams will be gone forever.
