"The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee"

The Full Cast

The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee
William Finn (Music & Lyrics); Rachel Sheinkin (Book)
Conceived by Rebecca Feldman; Additional Material by Jay Reiss

Even though we are collectively fast losing all abilities to calculate numbers, write in cursive, or spell almost any word without technology’s help, we do still have a fascination with that increasingly anachronistic school and community event, the spelling bee.  Evidence the continued popularity on stages all across America and the globe of the hilariously touching and even life-lesson-teaching The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee, a 2005 winner of multiple Tonys.   

Hillbarn Theatre welcomes the Putnam County whiz kids in a solid and heart-warming Bee full of F-U-N for all.  Please follow the link to my full review on Talkin' Broadway: http://www.talkinbroadway.com/page/regional/sanjose/sj24.html
