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.

We got front row seats with Goldstar (though the theater was empty enough that we could have moved back had we wanted - it was a Wednesday). The play was entertaining and had some surprises toward the end. I was surprised to learn that it was such a groundbreaking film and was nominated for so many awards and is considered a classic. I wonder if there was something about this performance that made it less scintillating than the movie. It seemed like the actors were good.
The performance is recommended for audiences ages 13 years old and older.
