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.

Reviews & Ratings
<p>By Tom Stoppard
Directed by Aaron Posner </p> <p>This modern masterpiece, part history, part mystery, calibrates the relationship between the past and the present in the lush setting of an English country house. Encompassing many endeavors of the mind — from mathematics and physics to poetry and landscape architecture — Stoppard's play is wildly intelligent, extremely funny, and poignantly human. </p>
