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.

Beard's life had to consist largely of creating, testing, and writing recipes, and yet this aspect of his life is almost totally ignored in the production. The acting is superb; the sets, lighting and special effects are also terrific. But Beard's life story ends abruptly in this production, without much narrative justification, and just as the going is getting good.
This show is recommended for those age 15 and older.
