I get a kick out of my kids watching shows that I watched at their ages, and becoming familiar with characters that I knew so well as a child. Now they can take that familiarity to a new level when they see The Addams Family: A New Musical Comedy live on stage at the Fox Theatre! This is a really interesting choice of television show to set to music and adapt to the stage, and I'm looking forward to seeing what the creative forces that be can do with it.
Just in case you have never seen The Addams Family, I'll give you a very brief synopsis. The show is about a creepy extended family, all living together in a big old house, with each member of the family having all sorts of strange obsessions and interests. They dapple in magic and deadpan some really macabre subject matter, like playing with objects of torture and plotting the murder of pesky friends. But however grim that might sound, it is all in good fun, and the family is actually a good example of loyalty and unconditional love and acceptance.
Whether or not you are a fan of the 1960s television series, the 1990s movies, or any other incarnation of The Addams Family, the musical comedy version sounds like a great family outing!
