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.

Wow! This was so much more and better than I expected. The tour was extremely informative and well-presented. Ms. Drakes really brings her character and the city of Washington to life. Her visual aids really helped me learn a lot about the life of Elizabeth Keckly as well as that of Mary Todd Lincoln. I highly recommend this tour for both tourists and long-time residents because of the way it helps you to understand what Washington was like as the Civil War ended.
