Description

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.
