The Addams Family, Broadway Premiere

Addams-Family-BroadwayThe Addams Family on Broadway

Opening Night- March 4, 2010

The Lunt Fontanne Theatre
Tickets on Sale Now

Starring two-time Tony Award® winners Nathan Lane and Bebe Neuwirth.

The weird and wonderful family created by The New Yorker cartoonist Charles Addams comes to devilishly delightful life in a Broadway musical. This magnificently macabre new show is created by Jersey Boys authors Marshall Brickman & Rick Elice.

It’s an Addams Family portrait you’ve never seen before. Gomez, all mad impetuosity; Morticia, equal parts fire and ice; Fester, restless and romantic; Pugsley and Wednesday, eighteen years old and finally feeling what it means to be a woman. A family that’s quite shockingly, and endearingly, just like yours.
