The cast was great (especially Gomez), but the musical itself was not one of my favorites. There was humor, but it wasn't dark enough. Also, the story just seemed to drag along, as the first act was much better than the second.

I took my family which included three kids to this event. We loved it. The show was thoroughly entertaining and the venue is really breathtaking. Out seat we're decent and the show wasn't sold out. I highly recommend see this event.

I really disliked this interpretation of most of the Addams characters. Gomez's accent was incredibly cheesy and annoying, and the extremely cheery un-Wednesday Addams demeanor was so off for her character and her lack of trademark braided...continued

Excellent costumes. For the most part great acting and singing. But the story was so lacking in substance, that I found myself bored. The plot is clearly La Cage Aux Follies (The Birdcage), but with a very thin coat of Creepy and Kooky. Everything...continued

Great Seats. Great Price. AWESOME Show.
Wonderful show for all people. My friend and I grew up watching the Addams Family (in B&W, the movies, the animated series) and this did not disappoint. He also brought his family and his kids, who have...continued

I was pleasantly surprised! A very entertaining show. The actors were extremely great especially the lead actor. He was the best in the group. THe lines were very funny.

I would rate this show a 3.5 if possible. Better than ok, but not great. Once again, my seat was WAY off to the side, which is frustrating because there were tons of seats more center-stage in the same section. The show itself was entertaining,...continued

A fun evening for anyone who is a fan of the Addams Family. Lurch steals the show, but the rest of the cast hold their own. I only wish Douglas Sills (Gomez) got to show off his musical abilities a bit more.

From the very beginning with the signature musical opening that caused everyone to snap their fingers along, this show was fun, fun, fun! Thoroughly enjoyed every minute. Visually delicious, excellent songs, and true to Charles Addams...continued

The actors playing Gomez and Fester stole the show! Great dance choreography and creative deceased family member costumes. Was a bit light and fluffy for an Addams Family plot, but enjoyable and humorous with the expected innuendos and some jabs...continued
