You may want to arrive at least a half hour before curtain call to get a good parking spot and your tickets, if they are at "will call".

The weather was very cold and a bit drizzly. I wore nice jeans and a sweater with a pretty holiday, red scarf. The audience was dressed very casual..

I didn't know much about the show, although I had heard of it. It was one of the funniest and most enjoyable shows I have ever seen. They did a great job and made it really fun.

The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee 

Music and Lyrics by William Finn

Book by Rachel Sheinkin 

Directed by Alyson Soma 

Is the hilarious tale of overachievers’ angst chronicling the experience of six adolescent outsiders vying for the spelling championship of a lifetime. The show’s Tony Award winning creative team has created the unlikeliest of hit musicals about the unlikeliest of heroes: a quirky yet charming cast of outsiders for whom a spelling bee is the one place where they can stand out and fit in at the same time.
