A group of quirky, socially awkward over-achievers find joy, heartache and a purpose as they compete at the regional spelling bee. Winner of two Tony Awards, The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee charms audiences with its effortless wit and humor, fast-paced and touching story, and fresh, vibrant score by William Finn (Falsettos, A New Brain). It’s a wildly funny, riotous ride where winning (and losing) isn’t everything.
“Winsome and winning…generously warm-hearted!” – Variety
