The Addams Family is adding to its kooky family tree. Broadway vet Curtis Holbrook will play Lucas Beineke in the national tour of the blockbuster show.
As the handsome Ohioan who steals Wednesday’s heart, Holbrook takes over the role he covered in the Broadway production while performing in the ensemble. His other Broadway credits include West Side Story, Xanadu, All Shook Up, The Boy From Oz, Taboo, Fosse and Footloose. He has appeared on screen in Hairspray, Across the Universe, Smash, Nurse Jackie, Law and Order: SVU and All My Children.
Holbrook joins a cast that includes Douglas Sills as Gomez, Sara Gettelfinger as Morticia, Cortney Wolfson as Wednesday, Patrick D. Kennedy as Pugsley, Blake Hammond as Uncle Fester and Pippa Pearthree as Grandma.
Based on the bizarre and beloved characters created by Charles Addams, this macabre musical finds the Addams clan put to the test when outsiders come to dinner, hurling Gomez, Morticia, Wednesday, Pugsley, Fester, Grandma and Lurch headlong into a night that will change the family forever.
