The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee is a comedy with music and lyrics by William Finn, a book by Rachel Sheinkin, conceived by Rebecca Feldman with additional material by Jay Reiss and originally directed on Broadway by James Lapine. The show centers on a fictional spelling bee set in the geographically ambiguous Putnam Valley Middle School. Six quirky adolescents compete in the Bee, run by three equally quirky grown-ups. Winning isn’t everything—Spelling Bee runs September 13 through September 22, 2019. Rated PG13, some language and mild adult themes.
