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.

Honest, poignant, inspirational, and surprisingly funny, ReEntry is an unflinching look at the lives of Marines returning from Iraq and Afghanistan. It’s about stepping off that plane and coming home, re-entering ones life, family, and country – again.
With dialogue taken directly from interviews with privates and colonels, combat vets and clerks, and one particularly memorable family, ReEntry tells the stories you haven’t heard. It puts politics and Hollywood aside to probe the unvarnished, powerfully personal truths of those who serve and sacrifice.
How do you shift from battlefields to backyard barbecues? What’s the price paid by families when husbands, mothers, sons, and sisters go to war?
