The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee
The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee centers on six adolescent overachievers, each mired in their own unique form of pubescent angst as they embark on a comic quest to win a spelling competition. The affable outcasts battle batty judges, frustrating pronouncers, and unhelpful usage-in-a-sentence examples—but the trials and travails of the bee pale in comparison to the struggles with divorce, deep-seated fears, and other real-life struggles. During each performance, four volunteer audience members hop on stage to compete in the bee along with the characters, creating the most fun crowd-participation opportunity since Laurence Olivier’s infamous stage dives.
Writer Rachel Sheinkin won a Tony for her story of Chip Tolentino, Leaf Coneybear, William Barfee, Marcy Park, Olive Ostrovsky, and the unfairly advantaged Logainne Schwartzandgrubenniere. Composer William Finn’s quirky, wistful score won a Tony of its own.
