The Try Something New Everyday experiment

Today I saw The Addams Family

on January 18, 2014

wpid-wp-1390173129041.jpgI have season tickets to the Off Broadway shows at a local theater.  I’ve had them for several years and as such many of the shows get duplicated.  For instance, this season Mamma Mia, West Side Story and Chicago have all returned for repeat performances.  I’m not complaining at all.  Each tour gives a unique perspective to the stories, the sets are never the same but really…even a bad performance at the theater is still a good night at the theater.  This is the first showing of The Addams Family and I’ve been eager to see it!

The show opened, ever appropriately, in the graveyard.  We get to meet the whole family: Gomez, Morticia, Uncle Fester, Grandma, Wednesday, Pugsley and Lurch.  We also find out Wednesday has fallen in love!

You can imagine what a curious story that is!!

I won’t go any further about the story line because I would hate to spoil it for you!  I will just say the whole cast did a great job but some actors just really stood out.  Wednesday and Lurch stole the show.
