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.

The actors' enthusiasm kept me interested even when there was no there there. As a mirror of the times we're fumbling our way through, the story line(s?) were accurate. But the feeling as the audience rose at the end to leave seemed to be, What was the point? ... Some of the characters and their interactions did come to mind, though, the next day, so maybe the point was just to hold a mirror up to ourselves, with no comment.
