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.


for The Addams Family

"The Addams Family, headed by Nathan Lane and Bebe Neuwirth, is a glitzy-gloomy musical in which the quick and the dead are equally full of character. The whole show is a menage a trois of the ghastly, the ghostly and the side-splitting."

Review by John Simon from Bloomberg News

"The A-list cast delivers their laugh lines with aplomb and zest. Lane's twee Spanish accent grows on you, and Neuwirth displays her patented, meteorology-defying hauteur: the colder she gets, the hotter she seems."

Review by David Cote from Time Out New York
