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.

Hated it. True Addams family fans will be annoyed.

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

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.

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.

Very enjoyable though it lacked any memorable music except for the opening theme song. Children will like the performance and the sexual jokes will go over their heads. As usual, the sound system wasn't the best. The character's were very well...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.

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

We really enjoyed the show. The actors and writers did a good job making the play faithful or giving tribute to the TV show. It was fun and the special effects were well done. The venue was also perfect for the show. Great evening!

Certainly not one of our great musicals, but a worthy diversion. The cast did a fine job, and there was plenty of humor to propel the goofy story. Binoculars are a must in the third tier, or you'll miss much of what the actors are doing.
