Based on the cartoons by Charles Addams about a delightfully macabre family, The Addams Family features book by Marshall Brickman and Rick Elice and music and lyrics by Andrew Lippa. When Wednesday Addams, the ultimate princess of darkness, falls for a sweet, smart young man from a respectable family, she confides in her father and begs him not to tell her mother. Now Gomez Addams must do something he’s never done before – keep a secret from his beloved wife, Morticia. Everything will change for the whole family on the fateful night they host a dinner for Wednesday’s “normal” boyfriend and his parents.
