That's right theatre fans. You only have one more week to catch the original cast of Broadway's The Addams Family. Now technically the whole cast is not leaving. You've still got Bebe Neuwirth as Morticia. Oh and don't forget Zachary James as Lurch, Adam Riegler as Pugsley, and of course the always hysterical Jackie Hoffman as Grandma.
Joining the cast of kooky characters are Tony winner Roger Rees as Gomez and Broadway faves Heidi Blickenstaff as Alice Bienke and Tony nominee Brad Oscar as Uncle Fester. Earlier this month I posted a blog stating that while I loved the show I worried that the show would not survive for very long without it's main star. I love Bebe as much as the next person. but she's not Nathan.
Now do I expect the show to up and close in the next month? No. However with the onslaught of new shows coming in in the the next two months there is going to be a whole lot more competition. My guess is it will last at least until Labor Day. However if some of the new shows fail then it might have a chance.
Keep your fingers crossed. Now there is a silver lining to all this believe it or not. With the departure of it's leading man next week more seats will become available. That means better seats and not only that but at lower prices as well. Who doesn't love a bargain? Get your tickets to see The Addams Family on Broadway. Take it from me. You will love it.
