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 really liked it; almost a five. Excellent story telling. With the exception of Lord Capulet, most of the characters stayed within a very tight range. You knew that Juliet was one smart cookie and that Romeo was in love with being in love, in addition to being in love with Juliet. Lord Capulet -- he was a crazy man. You never knew what he was going to do. Really enjoyed hearing the commentary of the high school students who were attending the play; they were relating to the characters on the stage as peers.
