The Spitfire Grill music and book by James Valq; lyrics and book by Fred Alley; based on the film by the same name by Lee David Zlotoff. Directed by C. Patrick Gendusa.                             

Winner of the Richard Rodgers Production Award, administered by The American Academy of Arts and Letters, this musical depicts the journey of a young woman just released from prison who decides to start her life anew in a rural Wisconsin town. In The New York Times, Ben Brantley wrote that “the songs are shiny with tunefulness, hope, and all-American inflections of country and folk." Also in The New York Times, Alvin Klein declared the show “a soul-satisfying new musical. The Spitfire Grill is a complete work of theatrical resourcefulness. A compelling story that flows with grace and carries the rush of anticipation. The warm, indigenous American folk sound of Mr. Valcq’s score is, harmonically and melodically, as theatrical as it is grass roots. Mr. Alley’s lyrics accomplish the considerable feat of poetically offering inspiration while holding the syrup. The musical is freeing. It is penetrated by honesty and it glows.”

SWEET BIRD OF YOUTH

By Tennessee Williams

Directed by Mel. Cook

Featuring Leslie Castay as Princess Kosmonopolis and Martin Bradford as Chance Wayne

Presented in partnership with the Tennessee Williams/New Orleans Literary Festival

Southern Rep Theatre is in residence at the Loyola University Department of Theatre Arts.

Melting in the heat of the Deep South, a dwindling star is swept up in a race against time. Fueled by booze, pills, and entitlement Alexandra del Lago (Leslie Castay) places herself in the care of Chance Wayne, an ambitious gigolo with less than a heart of gold and a drama of his own unfolding.
