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.

This tour was so much fun!!! It had the excitement of a Murder Mystery event, but with the added true historical facts of the events of Lincoln's Assasination. I will be back in DC area in late July and plan on taking the tour again.
The tour is only in it's 2nd week and it seemed like they'd been doing it for years it was so well setup. I hope they keep it going forever.
On the night of April 14, 1865, Detective John McDevitt was on duty at the Washington Metropolitan Police headquarters at the corner of 10th and E Streets. Just before 10:30pm, frantic witnesses rushed in with news: President Lincoln had been shot at Ford’s Theatre. Before long, other rumors swept the streets: the Secretary of State, the Vice-President, General Grant were all dead...Southern prisoners had been freed...Confederate cavalry were converging on the city. This tour will look at the Lincoln assassination conspiracy and separate fact from fiction.
History on Foot lasts approximately two hours and makes at least eight stops throughout the story. The tour does not actually go inside the theater. The distance walked is approximately 1.4 miles, an easy walk to follow one of the most exciting nights in American history.
