Theater review: ‘Best of Broadway: 1995-1999,’ at Breakthrough Theatre

By Elizabeth Maupin
Elizabeth Maupin on Theater

People who put together musical revues tend to go one of two ways: Either they pull together a whole lot of songs that most of the audience has never heard before, or they pull together a whole lot of songs you’ve heard too many times. (Cabaret singers, take note: “Defying Gravity” may have been sung once too often.)

He’s given you a little of both, and he’s honed in on a period, not so far in the past, when one Broadway show seemed to feed another so that you get a feeling for what the era was like.

Six young people in the throes of puberty, overseen by grown-ups who barely managed to escape childhood themselves, learn that winning isn’t everything and that losing doesn’t necessarily make you a loser.

The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee is a hilarious tale of overachievers’ angst chronicling the experience of six adolescent outsiders vying for the spelling championship of a lifetime. The show’s Tony Award winning creative team has created the unlikeliest of hit musicals about 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.

Roles:

  • Chip Tolentino  C3 – B4 (Tenor)
  • William Barfee (this role cast)
  • Marcy Park E5 (Soprano/Mezzo-soprano)
  • Douglas Panch
  • Leaf Coneybear / Carl Grubenierre A2 – G4 (Baritenor)
  • Mitch Mahoney / Dan Schwartz / Olive’s dad E3 – A4 (B4) (Tenor)
  • Rona Lisa Peretti / Olive’s Mom C#4 – Ab5 (Soprano)
  • Logainne Schwartzandgrubenierre / Leaf’s Mom C4 – D5 (Soprano)
  • Olive Ostrovsky / Leaf’s Siblings (this role cast)

The show runs November 5-21, Fridays and Saturdays at 8 p.m. and Sundays at 3 p.m., with an Industry Night on Monday, November 15, at 8 p.m.

The Breakthrough Theatre is located at 419A W. Fairbanks Avenue in Winter Park. The telephone number is 407-920-4034.
