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.

A straight -ahead play on a tough subject -- the death of a child, but there are many more layers of meaning to ponder, including the perils of upward mobility in America. Well performed and produced. Keegan Theatre is easy to get to from Dupont Circle Metro, and the walk back is pretty well populated, not especially scary. I would certainly go back to this venue.
Quotes & Highlights
- “The production gets commendable mileage from understatement, physical distances and telling pauses as it paints a portrait of grief and survival after enormous loss.” --<em><a target="_blank" href="http://www.washingtonpost.com/entertainment/theater_dance/rabbit-hole-is-artful-portrait-of-survival-after-loss/2013/07/04/6d8e71c8-e4c9-11e2-aef3-339619eab080_story.html">Washington Post</a></em>
