Unnecessarily crude humor. Although I was ready for the "erection" bit and the two gay fathers, I was taken back y the portrayal of Jesus as Liberace. To me, that crossed the line of bad taste and ruined the show.

Play was funny yet a little raunchy for younger children. Acting was excellent by most of the staff --

This was our first time at the Alley Stage Based on the quality of this performance we will be back. Nice, intimate setting and great performers. Only problem was finding parking which isn't unusual around the Marietta Square.

The theater is general admission, but that works very well for this size stage. Spelling Bee is the perfect show for this size venue. There was a little bit of a sound... continued

We had a great time at the Bee. Neither of us were familiar with the musical, and we were pleasantly surprised. It's definitely an adult show, so leave the kids at home. Come prepared to laugh!

Small, cozy theater. Funny show well presented with hit-or-miss performances. All leads were excellent and strong, side performers delivered weak performances. Overall, the show was fun and funny.

All the tickets were general seating which I did not know. I thought that we would be relegated to the side seats. We purposely got there early & had center seats. It... continued

We saw the Putnam county spelling bee yesterday and it was great. For a small theater group they put in 120% and more. We thoroughly enjoyed the show.
