It’s a given that any beloved pop culture property probably will take a spin (successfully or not) on Broadway. The Addams Family, the creepy, kooky clan that achieved mass appeal with a mid-'60s TV show that became syndication gold, hit the Great White Way in 2010 and land in Tempe this week.
The dapper Gomez Addams and his scintillatingly spooky wife Morticia head up a collection of eccentrics including goth daughter Wednesday, mischievous son Pugsley, potion-brewing Grandma, and bald weirdo Uncle Fester. In this musical comedy adaptation, Wednesday and her normal boyfriend Lucas Beinke declare their intention to marry, and Fester’s meddling traps both sides of their families in the Addams mansion for a long night together.
