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 play kept me engaged throughout. All actors were excellent. Tears surprisingly came to my eyes when Billy revealed in that unfamiliar, primordial, voice that he had found a love. Projecting translations on the set of what was being communicated or thought in truth was novel and helpful. I appreciate the fact that the play gave me some insight to a world I know nothing of - deafness.
