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.

There are several parking garages and meters within short walking distance to the theater. Most are $10 for the evening (at least on Saturday evenings), but the closest ones are upwards of $12. There's also an $8 valet parking a couple of blocks away.travel • Jan 29 2014 star this tip starred
Be fore warned that more than 1/3 or the rear orchestra seats at Ford's Theater are what I call "partially obstructed." Expect to have a column in you're line of site nearly every where. I wasn't happy with my seat at all but there plenty of empties and I changes seats at intermission.info • Feb 03 2014 star this tip starred
