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.

A brilliant tour de force!!!! Absolutely loved loved loved this performance. This actor is phenomenal - sure it's a wonderful life is a familiar story and you have to be living underneath a rock no to know it - but the way this actor seamlessly moved in and out of the key characters was truly a sight to behold. This is a holiday classic for sure and definitely not to be missed! Thanks for another terrific evening out! And as an FYI - I have seen two other performances at this venue, Birds of a Feather and The Clockmaker and each has been outstanding. Thanks again!
The Hub kicks off the mainstage season just in time for the holidays with a world premiere and new take on a seasonal classic. Wonderful Life is based on It’s a Wonderful Life, produced and directed by Frank Capra. The Hub’s Artistic Director, Helen Pafumi, and talented actor and Hub favorite, Jason Lott (The Pavilion and Summer Cabaret), have co-adapted the classic to create a fun new version for the stage. Every holiday season, we follow George Bailey through highs and lows as he struggles to understand his own worth and ultimately finds that life is worth living. The Hub’s new telling features Jason Lott playing all the roles necessary to bring this Christmas tale to life. This exciting and demanding one-person show is sure to delight audiences of all ages this holiday season.
