We had a great time - loved the actors/actresses - great voices and they were really fun to watch!

Unnecessarily crude humor. Although I was ready for the "erection" bit and the two gay fathers, I was taken back y the portrayal of Jesus as Liberace. To me, that crossed the line of bad taste and ruined the show.

Play was funny yet a little raunchy for younger children. Acting was excellent by most of the staff --

This was our first time at the Alley Stage Based on the quality of this performance we will be back. Nice, intimate setting and great performers. Only problem was finding parking which isn't unusual around the Marietta Square.

The theater is general admission, but that works very well for this size stage. Spelling Bee is the perfect show for this size venue. There was a little bit of a sound issue, but overall the show was great. VERY funny and the local/updated humor...continued

We had a great time at the Bee. Neither of us were familiar with the musical, and we were pleasantly surprised. It's definitely an adult show, so leave the kids at home. Come prepared to laugh!

Really well done- characters were great, improve at intermission was hysterical and the small theatre made us feel part of the action.

Small, cozy theater. Funny show well presented with hit-or-miss performances. All leads were excellent and strong, side performers delivered weak performances. Overall, the show was fun and funny.

All the tickets were general seating which I did not know. I thought that we would be relegated to the side seats. We purposely got there early & had center seats. It was the perfect play for a small stage. All of the actors portrayed their...continued

I saw this once before in NYC and I forgot how hilarious it was! Let me warn you, if you are sensitive, easily offended, and don't appreciate crude humor, this is not the play for you; don't be fooled by the title. This is not a play for...continued

We saw the Putnam county spelling bee yesterday and it was great. For a small theater group they put in 120% and more. We thoroughly enjoyed the show.

What a HOOT! Bravo to cast and crew!! GREAT show, my friends and I were in tears from laughter. Needed no preparation for gay parenting plot line or innuendo. The Liberace/Jesus bit was fabulous, and left the guy in front of us with an...continued
