The Addams Family

Feb 28 - Mar 4 , 2012

“Classic, Full-tilt, Fast Paced, Old-fashioned Musical Comedy!”
– Chris Jones, Chicago Tribune

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 and 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 and Julian Crouch (Shockheaded Peter) with creative consultation by four-time Tony® Award winner Jerry Zaks. Come meet the family. We’ll leave the lights off for you.
