Based on Charles Addams original macabre cartoons, "The Addams Family" finds the charmingly creepy clan facing a new nightmare: Daughter Wednesday has fallen in love… with a nice young man from Ohio. Despite the pair's plea for things to just be normal for once, the dinner party hosted by Gomez and Morticia to meet the boy's parents soon goes devilishly awry, testing the bonds of family, love and unholy matrimony.
A Broadway blockbuster, this wickedly hilarious musical conjures the irreverent spirit and morbid humor of the comics while illustrating that though the unknown may be frightening, when we face the darkness, love and acceptance await.
The cast of "The Addams Family" includes some actors who are well-known to Broadway Rose regulars, including Joe Theissen (Gomez), Lisamarie Harrison (Morticia), Isaac Lamb (Uncle Fester), Emily Windler (Grandma), Molly Duddlesten (Wednesday), Karsten George (Pugsley), Bruce Lawson (Lurch), Jared Mack (Mal Beineke), Amy Jo Halliday (Alice Beineke) and Colin Kane (Lucas Beineke).
