54 BELOW, Broadway's Supper Club, presents Zanna, Don't! Class Reunion, a concert presentation of the 2003 Off-Broadway cult favorite benefiting the Hetrick-Martin Institute for LGBTQ Youth. Tim Acito's beloved musical fairy tale is set in a world where gay is the norm, the chess team is cool, and the football players are dorks. When the students put on an original musical about the hot-button issue of straights in the military (because if musical theater won't address important political issues, what will?), the opposite-sex leads realize their true feelings for each other and all hell breaks loose in the quiet town of Heartsville. It's up to magical matchmaker Zanna to put things right and bring love to all - including himself!

BWW Reviews: Northern Stage's THE SPITFIRE GRILL is a Must See
by Daniel Adams - Apr 23, 2014

I have seen the movie version of The Spitfire Grill on multiple occasions. I had taken a liking to it for a couple different reasons. The movie was set in Gilead, Maine, which I grew up about 20 minutes from. The film was shot on locations near where I currently live and where I attended college. At the time it was a big deal and many locals where cast as extras. Now almost 20 years later, I had the opportunity to view the adapted musical version at Northern Stage in White River Junction, Vermont. If I may be so blunt, you must see this show.
