About the Show
In the kooky, upside-down world of The Addams Family, to be sad is to be happy, to feel joy and death and suffering are the stuff of their dreams. Nonetheless, this quirky family still has to deal with many of the same challenges faced by any other family. The spookiest nightmare faced by every family creates the focus for this new musical with book by Marshall Brickman and Rick Elice and music and lyrics by Andrew Lippa.
The Addams kids are growing up. The characters created by Charles Addams for the entertaining television classic have lived by their unique values for hundreds of years and Gomez and Morticia, the patriarch and matriarch of the clan, would be only too happy to continue living that way. Their dark, macabre, beloved daughter, Wednesday, however, is now an eighteen year-old young woman who is ready for a life of her own. She has fallen in love with Lucas Beineke, a sweet, smart boy from a normal, respectable Ohio family – the most un-Addams sounding person one could be! And to make matters worse, she has invited the Beinekes to their home for dinner. In one fateful, hilarious night, secrets are disclosed, relationships are tested, and the Addams family must face up to the one horrible thing they’ve managed to avoid for generations: change.
