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.

I thought the play was fantastic. It was very close to me in certain ways, because I served in United States Air Force during the Vietnam War as a Black officer. Beleive it or not, some of the scenes in play were still occurring in the early 70's. My hat is off to all the people who had anything to do with making that so real. I will going to see it again before it leaves the Ford Theater.

I thought the acting was very good and that it was an interesting story. It was a bit artsy for my taste with the tap dancing, choreographed flying scenes and the storyline could have been somewhat tighter. But overall, I enjoyed it.
Recommended for ages 10 and up. Play includes some adult language.
