Philly as Gilead: Drexel Students Reunite Cast, Creator For 15th Anniversary of 'The Spitfire Grill'

A musical about second chances is getting one of its own this summer when students from Drexel University’s Westphal College of Media Arts & Design bring a theatrical stage reading of “The Spitfire Grill” to Philadelphia. The James Valcq and Fred Alley musical, adapted from the 1996 film starring Ellen Burstyn and Marcia Gay Harden, had the misfortune of opening in New York four days before the tragedy of Sept. 11, 2001. Though its moment in the Big Apple was not to be, “The Spitfire Grill” and Valcq have had a loyal following, including Drexel professor Brannon Wiles who, along with his Entertainment Arts Management students, are putting together a musical reading of the show that will reunite many of the original cast members. Valcq himself will direct the performances, which will be held at The Caplan Studio Theater on South Broad Street from June 3-5, in honor of the 15th anniversary of the show’s debut.
