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 was a very delightful evening. I have been to the GL G&S society performances before, and sometimes they are uneven, but thisTrial by Jury was excellent, and the followup review was truly a romp. Alumni from past shows had flown in to perform, and the repertoire included some a good variety of G& S songs, some performed faithfully to the original version, some a vehicle for parody. There was even an audience participation game! There were truly excellent voices performing in the review, consistently. and the audience demand several encores, which the group responded to. I loved it!
