What theater critics are saying about Beck Center's production of The Spitfire Grill:

  • "Perfectly cast...a compelling story of redemption, discovery, true friendship and romance."-
  • "Astounding...The superb Beck Center cast...come equipped with gorgeous voices." - Cleveland Jewish News
  • "Universally excellent...A well-conceived, acted, and sung production." - Broadway World Cleveland
  • "Charming...It doesn't get better than this." - Westlife
  • "Tremendous..Gives the audience a feel-good sense of well being." - AXS

Based on the 1996 film of the same title, this indy-charmer follows Percy Talbott as she starts over in rural Wisconsin after serving time in prison. Through changed seasons and cleaned slates, Percy and her unlikely new friends discover it's not too late to follow their dreams. Filled with spirit and soaring folk melodies, The Spitfire Grill plants its heartfelt roots in a tale of second chances and goodwill.
