The high-stakes world of middle-school spelling competitions takes center stage, as does a plethora of pubescent angst and awkwardness, in Broadway's hit musical comedy about six overacheiving would-be wordsmiths and their even less well-adjusted parents. The hilariously catchy songs capture teenage troubles at their worst, from "Woe Is Me" to "My Unfortunate Erection (Chip's Lament)," and the hard-fought 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 Tonys in its original run, winning for Best Book.
