Founded in 1920, the historic Phoenix Theatre stages stories to please all tastes, including dramas and classic plays for adults, family-friendly theater, and a special series of new works. The Spitfire Grill, a musical adaptation of director Lee David Zlotoff's award-winning film, revisits the tale of a young woman recently released from prison who gets a second lease on life and a studio apartment. When the protagonist finds work at a restaurant in a small town, the story zooms in on the kindnesses and complex relationships between waitresses and regulars before leading to a conclusion that director Brad Carroll describes as "intimate" and "uplifting." In the preview performance of the show, the well-rehearsed cast will breeze through lines with passionate delivery in hopes of getting to the alternative ending where they discover liquid gold bubbling inside the coffeemaker.
Originally established as the Phoenix Players in 1920, Phoenix Theatre operated out of the Phoenix Little Theatre for almost 30 years before settling into its current location. The 1952 building would become the core of the city’s cultural area, later drawing such establishments as the Phoenix Art Museum and Phoenix Library. The company’s current performance space does little to draw the audience’s attention away from the stage, save for the crisscross of industrial railings that support the catwalks and the retired jerseys of older playwrights.
