Considered by many to be the funniest farce ever written, Noises Off reveals the hilarious backstage antics and drama of a group of small-town actors attempting to perform a dreadful flop called Nothing On. This play-within-a-play is a comedic triumph of slamming doors, falling trousers and flying fish. Written by award-winning English novelist and playwright Michael Frayn (Copenhagen, Democracy), this comedy of errors remains a crowd pleaser more than 30 years after its 1982 debut. It was also turned into a film in 1992 starring Michael Caine, Carol Burnett, Christopher Reeve and John Ritter. Learn More

The touring production has been rewritten from the Broadway version and is a cleaner, more focused show. That said, it's not a knockout. There are several funny and enjoyable moments but the music is not memorable. Also, some of the effects are diminished if you sit too close to the stage. Probably best to stay at least five rows back.

Some very talented people up there, but the closest resemblance to any of the original Addams characters was that of Uncle Fester and perhaps Lurch the butler. Musical Theatre doesn't seem Addams family fare and the cheerful (forgettable) melodies...continued
The weird and wonderful family comes to devilishly delightful life in The Addams Family. This magnificently macabre new musical comedy is created by Jersey Boys authors Marshall Brickman and Rick Elice, Drama Desk-winning composer-lyricist Andrew Lippa (The Wild Party_), choreographer Sergio Trujillo (Jersey Boys_) and Olivier Award-winning director / designers Phelim McDermott & Julian Crouch (Shockheaded Peter) with production supervision by four-time Tony Award-winner Jerry Zaks.
The Addams Family features an original story and it’s every father’s nightmare. Wednesday Addams, the ultimate princess of darkness, has grown up and fallen in love with a sweet, smart young man from a respectable family. A man her parents have never met. And if that weren’t upsetting enough, she confides in her father and begs him not to tell her mother. Now, Gomez Addams must do something he’s never done before — keep a secret from his beloved wife, Morticia. Everything will change for the whole family on the fateful night they host a dinner for Wednesday’s “normal” boyfriend and his parents.
This show is recommended for those age 7 and older.
The running time is two hours and 30 minutes, including a 15-minute intermission.
