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.

Directed by Jonathan Zucker
Caryl Churchill's Obie-award winning carnivalesque satire, set first in 1879 Africa and then in 1979 London, follows the members of a British colonial family as they confront, manipulate, and unravel the absurdities of Victorian sexual and gender repression in the name of Queen and Country.
Due to adult language and themes, this show is not recommended for audience members younger than 13.
