Experience both laughs and chills -- possibly at the same time -- as the wickedly witty Addams family comes to life in an all-new musical comedy. When the grown-up Wednesday Addams falls head over heels for a normal boy, she invites his parents to the family mansion for a meet-and-greet gone gothic. Sit back and savor the horrific hospitality of Gomez, Morticia, Pugsley, Grandma, Lurch and everyone's favorite weirdo, Uncle Fester, as the special occasion brings out the best -- and worst -- in everyone involved. The award-winning team behind this magnificently macabre show includes authors Marshall Brickman and Rick Elice (Jersey Boys) and composer-lyricist Andrew Lippa (The Wild Party). Learn More

The play is just ok. It's not particularly well acted or well written. Not a bad option if you have nothing else to do but... On the upside, the venue was easy to find and parking was great. Also, the lady who played Suze did a great job.
About the Ticket Supplier: MBS Productions
MBS Productions specializes in “new theater.” In essence, every play or musical they do is a world premier. They are the only theatrical production company in North Texas that specializes exclusively in producing previously unseen works for the stage. They deem their audience to be the most adventurous, sophisticated, and eager, for they know that they’ll get to experience these new works.
MBS Productions was founded in 2004 by Mark-Brian Sonna when he produced the show, “Theatre of Death,” which was presented at the Teatro Dallas space for the Halloween season. The show consisted of six short plays dating from the middle ages through the present day, all dealing with death. Two of the plays were world premiers, three were new translations, and one was an adaptation of an existing work. This set the tone for what was to come. In 2005, they did a second show of “Theatre of Death” to kick off a 3-show season that carried them through the summer of 2006. In their 2006/2007 season, they presented five plays. They currently produce six shows a year, as well as assist and serve as consultants to other theater companies in developing and producing new and existing plays for their audiences.
