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.

I went with a dear friend to celebrate her 50th birthday and it turned out to be the perfect gift. She enjoyed the show immensely as did I. The acting was excellent, the settings and costumes were perfect, and the transitions were seamless. I noticed that there were people there of all ages and all laughed at the right moments. It was wonderful!

With his fortune on the line, Fogg and his valet use rail, steamer, and elephant to race through India, Asia, and America. Such challenges as a snooping detective, a possible human sacrifice, and a runaway train are met with Victorian virtue and a precision pocket watch. Nick Olcott (The Book Club Play) directs this wacky adventure.
