The high-stakes world of middle-school spelling competitions takes center stage in The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee. This musical comedy follows six overachieving would-be wordsmiths and their neurotic parents. The hilariously catchy songs capture teenage troubles at their worst from "Woe Is Me" to "My Unfortunate Erection (Chip's Lament)." And the contest teaches the valuable lesson that winning isn't the only definition of success. With music and lyrics by William Finn and a book by Rachel Sheinkin, The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee was nominated for Best Musical and five other Tony Awards in its original run, winning for Best Book.

Synetic brings this smash hit to Rosslyn Spectrum after its sold-out run at the Kennedy Center. Don’t miss your chance to see this fantastical, darkly playful game of love, mistaken identity, and the supernatural. Synetic's fourth installment of its "Silent Shakespeare" series (following wordless adaptations of Hamlet, Macbeth, and Romeo and Juliet) brings this time-honored favorite to new life with signature bravado and dramatic physicality.
