Synopsis

When Percy Talbott, a young woman with an uncertain past, comes to Gilead, Wisconsin, she simply wants a quiet, obscure place to start anew. She finds a job working in Hannah's Spitfire Grill. The grill is for sale but there are no takers in the depressed town, so Percy suggests a raffle which requires a $100 entry fee plus an essay on why you want the grill. Soon, entries come in by the wheelbarrow full, and things are definitely cookin' at the Spitfire Grill as Percy breathes life into the dying town, its residents and herself. It's one of the most heartfelt and radiant musicals of recent years, and its homespun charms are as inviting as a warm winter blanket. USA Today says it has "some of the most infectious and soaring country-flavored melodies, which will cause the city slickers in the audience to want to enter the raffle themselves."
