Jen Cody will probably be hilarious as Grandma but she is a little young.

Steve Rosen as Uncle Fester makes me want to fly out there to see the show!

Jen Cody isn't a little young for anything...
That's right! Underscore mother-fu@#ers!

Draw a little moustache on Rob and he looks like Gomez.

What a waste of talent on a terrible show.

I mean, it's the MUNY, the majority of the audience won't be able to tell who's playing the part unless they have a telescope.

Confused by Jen Cody's casting, but then again I never have cared too much for her. But, Kad is right. No one will tell how old she is at the MUNY.

This is kind of brilliant casting. I think all Cody needs is the right wig, and she'll be hilarious. Powers will be a pretty sexy Morticia.

Can't wait to see this show- I LOVE it as a whole, but it does have it's flaws.

I actually think Cody is the most fitting out of the entire list of casting. I think she'll be absolutely hilarious and I wish I could see her take on the role! Rob McClure is seems like an odd choice. Nevertheless, I wish I could see this!

Hollis is WAY too old for Alice, and should be the Grandma.

She's around the same age as John Scherer, no?

McClure and Powers seem too young to be the parents of an 18 year old wednesday

It's sad that such a talent like Rob has had to go back to regional theatre in such a lamebrain, mainstream, crowd-pleaser. Even though Chaplin was bad, he was incredible in it. He should be a star by now.

They can cast whoever they want, but this show is still a heaping pile of sh1t.

The show will never be "great", but I enjoyed Broadway and the changes made for the tour definitely improved the storytelling and overall logic/flow.

And hey -- these folks have to eat too! There's a long tradition of top-notch Broadway folks heading to the MUNY for a limited summer run of a musical that was recently on Broadway. This happens every year in one form or another.

I will be seeing the show Saturday-curios to hear what others think if they see the show. i must say that the costumes look extremely cheap, even by Muny Standards

Would it have killed them to put white makeup on steve rosen's hands?

From watching the video there is a lot of very questionable costume choices happening on that stage. Also considering Jenny Powers' TAN, did they change the line about "skin so pale, eyes so dark..."

All of these costumes (Especially Wednesday's) look like they have been bought off of Party Express' post-Halloween costume clearance sale.

IMO, this show is nothing with out the original cast, so many great and talented people.
