I did not expect to love this show but I have to say the cast and production won me over. It was fun fun fun from beginning to end. Everyone in the cast was excellent. Wednesday's voice was a particular standout!

Description

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?
