The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee is a hilarious musical tale of overachievers’ angst chronicling the experience of six adolescent outsiders vying for the spelling championship of a lifetime. Six young people in the throes of puberty, overseen by grown-ups who barely managed to escape childhood themselves, learn that winning isn’t managed to escape childhood themselves, learn that winning isn’t everything and that losing doesn’t necessarily make you a loser.
Music and Lyrics by William Finn, Book by Rachel Sheinkin, Conceived by Rebecca Feldman
