We have all watched the Addams Family shows on TV, either when they first appeared, or later in syndication, but now we have a chance to see the musical version on the Lowery Stage at Theatre Memphis.
The show will run from August 22, 2014 to September 14, 2014, with performances at 7:30pm on Thursdays, 8:00pm on Fridays & Saturdays, with Sunday matinees at 2:00pm. An additional performance will be performed at 7:30pm on Wed., September 10, 2014.
The synopsis of the musical is described in the production's press release. "The weird and wonderfully beloved Addams family created by cartoonist Charles Addams come to devilish life in this bright and macabre new musical receiving its regional premiere to open Theatre Memphis' season. Gomez, Morticia, Wednesday, Pugsley, Fester, Lurch and Grandma -- they're all brought lovingly to singing, dancing life by the authors of The Jersey Boys."
The show was created by Marshall Brickman, Rick Elice and Andrew Lippa, with direction by Cecelia Wingate, musical direction by Jeffrey Brewer and choreography by Jay Rapp. The shows are sponsored by Jackson Lewis, LLP, with media sponsors, Val Pak and The Best Times.
