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.

After hearing it was almost 3 hours, I was dreading this ... but it proved to be interesting and engaging ...
New Ford's Theater is very nice and comfortable ...
Interesting that they didnt have the gift shop open during either intermission and the snacks only during the first ...
Delightful evening ..
thanks Goldstar ... I had been on the lookout for cheaper seats for this
