Waking Up “The Spitfire Grill”

The Factory Theatre's musical production of The Spitfire Grill toasts the spirit of American hospitality, even though the owner/manager of the Grill, saucily played by Joy Gorrell, seems at first only grudgingly hospitable.

Still, the slow pace also showed the sluggishness of the dying town in winter, until spring comes and Percy comes up with the mustard seed idea for the Grill that gets the townsfolk to grow out of the thinking that has held them stagnant all this time. ...

A Look Back: The Batman Franchise

Written by Tyler Lamb. Recently I went to the world tour arena show Batman Live. After seeing this play, I realized that I have experienced the character of Batman on every single medium he has been offered upon. This got me thinking, which one is the best? Of course, the comics are the classic source material, but I would be lying if I said they were all good. The same goes for the movies and especially th ...
