2010 TONY AWARD® BEST MUSICAL NOMINEE
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 & 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.
This is definitely not the same old song and dance.
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.
It’s a family portrait that’s completely off the wall.
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 (including everything from an amorous giant squid to mixed-up potions to a scorching tango) ensues.
SHOULD I SEE IT?
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.
SHOULD I BRING THE LITTLE ONES?
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?
