THE ADDAMS FAMILY
September 11 - October 24, 2015
______________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

This hilarious musical features an original story, and it's every father's nightmare. Wednesday Addams, the ultimate princess of darkness, has grown up and fallen in love with a sweet, smart young man from a respectable family - a man her parents have never met. And if that weren't upsetting enough, Wednesday confides in her father and begs him not to tell her mother. Now, Gomez must do something he's never done before - keep a secret from his beloved wife, Morticia. Everything will change for the whole family on the fateful night they host a dinner for Wednesday's 'normal' boyfriend and his parents.
 
As part of the cast, the Broadway production had a long list of theatre heavy-weights including Nathan Lane as Gomez, Bebe Neuwirth as Morticia, Terrence Mann as Mal Beineke, Carolee Carmello as Alice Beineke, Kevin Chamberlin as Uncle Fester, and Jackie Hoffman as Grandma. Nominated for two Tony Awards, five Outer Critics Circle Awards (winner - Outstanding Set Design), and eight Drama Desk Awards (winner - Outstanding Set Design), the production opened at the Lunt-Fontanne Theatre in the spring of 2010 and played for over 700 performances and 35 previews before it closed on New Year's Eve 2011.
 
The Addams were created by cartoonist Charles Addams in 1938 as a "satirical inversion of the ideal American family." From their debut until the time of Addams' death in 1988, the eccentric and macabre family appeared in a series of 150 single panel cartoons in varies publications, most notably The New Yorker. The comics later inspired a 1960s television show starring John Astin as Gomez and a series of feature films in the 90's. 
 
The Addams Family is one of the newest and most recent Broadway shows to appear at Way Off Broadway following its New York run. An over-the-top musical romp with characters everyone knows and loves, this show will leave audiences rolling in the aisles. It's an area premiere not to be missed. Snap snap!
