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.

Young Peggy Sawyer comes to New York in search of fame and fortune and catches the eye of one of the most powerful directors on Broadway, Julian Marsh. As can only happen in a Broadway musical full of intrigue and plot twists, Peggy is discovered, hired, fired, and eventually becomes the star of the show. In between are thrilling dance numbers, fabulous sets and costumes and some of the most famous songs ever heard on a Broadway stage including "You're Getting to Be a Habit With Me," "We're in the Money," "I Only Have Eyes for You," "The Lullaby of Broadway," "About a Quarter To Nine," "Shuffle off to Buffalo," and "42nd Street."
