The Addams Family for the whole family

The new Musical The Addams Family could well be one of the most satisfying family experiences on Broadway this season. Recognizable characters created by cartoonist Charles Addams and made famous by television and movies these Addamses are today's disfunctional family who are slightly kooky and slighlty spooky but still seem to understand what good family values are all about.
Even Grandmama tries to educate Pugsley with "Stop texting and pick up a book once in a while".
I have seen the show twice and found it to be delightfully funny. Despite lukewarm to scathing revues this show has audience appeal. Both times I saw the show the audience responded with uproarious laughter as well as an instant standing ovation.
It showcases Nathan Lane as Gomez Addams, as well as Bebe Neuwirth as his lovely morbid wife Morticia. But this cast is well rounded and everyone has their shining moment...Particularly Kevin Chamberlin as Uncle Fester and Jackie Hoffman as Grandmama. Don't think twice...if you are going to New York City and you want to take the family to see something special, then book your tickets now.
