The Addams Family - A New Musical
Music and Lyrics by Andrew Lippa & Book by Marshall Brickman and Rick Elice
Based on Characters Created by Charles Addams
Based on the bizarre and beloved characters created by Charles Addams, this original story find the famously macabre Addams Family put to the test when outsiders come to dinner. Wednesday Addams has grown up and fallen in love with a sweet, smart young man from a respectable family, a family you would find right at home at the PTA meetings and local sports clubs. While she tells her father, Gomez, about her love and impending nuptials, she asks him to keep it from her mother, Morticia. Everything will change for the whole family on the fateful night they host a dinner for Wednesday’s “normal” boyfriend and his parents.
