The 25th Annual Putnam Spelling Bee

Learn  how The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee developed from an off-off-off-Broadway improv show to the beloved, hilarious and quirky Broadway hit. Through conversations with the show’s conceiver, actors, producer, and iconic director James Lapine, we’ll find out how the show survived a condemned East Village theater, found its footing at Barrington Stage, and then captured the hearts of New York audiences Off-Broadway at Second Stage before making it to Broadway at Circle in the Square.
