This magnificently macabre musical comedy was created from the beloved TV show by an award-winning team that includes authors Marshall Brickman and Rick Elice (Jersey Boys) and composer-lyricist Andrew Lippa (The Wild Party). It's a fresh take on the original comic strip-turned-TV-and-movie-series and boasts a new story featuring all your favorite characters, including Gomez, Morticia, Lurch, Uncle Fester and Wednesday -- who's all grown up now and in love with a "normal" young man. Whether their relationship can survive her family's kooky hijinks is anyone's guess. It's a "visually satisfying, rib-tackling, lunatic musical that will entertain you to death," according to Toronto Post City. Learn More

Quotes & Highlights
- (This show) “. . . owes as much to the insanity of Monty Python as to the inanity of actual sports programs.” —Boston Globe

If you’re a sports fan, you’ll like this show. If you’re not a sports fan, you’ll love this show!
The lunacy of sports collides with lunatic wit in The Complete World of Sports (abridged). From the earliest cavemen playing “Neanderthal in the Middle” to your own kid’s soccer practice, the entire history of athletic competition is celebrated in a tour de farce of physical theater. In the words of one critic, “It’s a triumph of speed, endurance, comic timing, high-scoring wordplay, a sharply satiric game plan and an all-out embrace of sports as fun.”
