KC cafeteria is horrible. Cafeteria with real restaurant $prices. Go over to Watergate and find pizza/salad place or hotel rest.for a bit more upscale. KC should be ashamed of itself for their "offerings".

Fun performance suitable for the whole family. Singers and dancers are excellent. Recommended for light summer entertainment.

Description

The Addams Family is a smash-hit musical comedy that brings the darkly delirious world of Gomez, Morticia, Uncle Fester, Grandma, Wednesday, Pugsley and, of course, Lurch to spooky and spectacular life. This magnificently macabre new musical comedy is created by _Jersey Boys _ authors Marshall Brickman & 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 creative consultation by four-time Tony Award® winner Jerry Zaks.

It’s every parent’s nightmare. Your little girl has suddenly become a young woman, and what’s worse, has fallen deliriously in love with a sweet, smart young man from a respectable family. Yes, Wednesday Addams, the ultimate princess of darkness, has a “normal” boyfriend, and for parents Gomez and Morticia, this shocking development will turn the Addams house downside up.

Come meet the family. We’ll leave the lights off for you…

Performance Timing: Act I  runs 73 minutes; Intermission is 18 minutes; Act II runs 57 minutes.
