The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee is a musical comedy about six young people in the throes of puberty, overseen by grown-ups who barely managed to escape childhood themselves, all of whom learn that winning isn't everything and that losing doesn't necessarily make you a loser. The unlikeliest of hit musicals, this Tony Award-winning tale of overachievement and angst will have you rooting for the unlikeliest of heroes: A quirky yet charming cast of outsiders for whom a spelling bee is the one place where they can stand out and fit in at the same time.
