When Tony-nominated playwright Ken Ludwig (Lend Me a Tenor, Moon Over Buffalo, Crazy for You) was looking for the setting of his next comedy, he had an epiphany playing golf. Everything about the game seemed perfect for roasting: the silly outfits, the stuffy country club rules, and the temper tantrums that erupt when a tiny ball doesn't roll into a tiny hole. Ludwig's new play The Fox on the Fairway captures all the absurdities of golf and those that play it. When the heads of two competing country clubs engage in a wager, hijinks are quickly "teed off." A tribute to the English farces of the '30s and '40s, The Fox on the Fairway moves with the speed of a Marx Brothers' classic, complete with rapid-fire dialogue, mistaken identities, slamming doors and over-the-top shenanigans.

What Is the Story of The Addams Family?
That lovable family of creepy kooks is alive and well and living in their super-spooky mansion in Central Park. The Addams family, led by the elegantly gaunt and seemingly undead Morticia and her ever-devoted husband Gomez, is in turmoil. Their daughter Wednesday, now 18, finds herself falling in love—a sensation that is unsettling for both her and her family of endearing misfits. When the teen invites her new boyfriend, Lucas Beineke, over with his “normal” family to get better acquainted with the Addams household, comic chaos ensues.
*What Is The Addams Family Like?
*Fans of Charles Addams’ macabre cartoons and the popular TV show and movies they inspired will not be disappointed by this musical. The original story and score may be new to audiences, but the iconic characters, including Lurch, Grandmama, Pugsley and Uncle Fester, remain. In addition to singing and dancing, this Addams Family is different from other incarnations of the altogether ooky clan: Wednesday, now coming of age, is no longer simply a pig-tailed lass with a penchant for (literally) torturing her brother, and Morticia has morphed from the picture of cool confidence to a woman faced with her own mortality—and all the anxiety (and perhaps comfort) that entails.
Is The Addams Family Good for Kids?
Despite talk of death, sexual innuendo and physical suffering, The Addams Family is perfect for kids. First Lady Michelle Obama brought her two daughters to the show; if that’s not a seal of approval, what is?
