THE ADDAMS FAMILY to Open 6/14 at Steps Off Broadway
"THE ADDAMS FAMILY" there is something strange going on in the famous house by the cemetery, and it's every father's nightmare. Wednesday Addams, the ultimate princess of darkness, has grown up and fallen in love with a sweet, smart young man from a respectable family - a man her parents have never met. And if that weren't upsetting enough, Wednesday 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 party for Wednesday's 'normal' boyfriend and his ultra conservative parents.
Directed by Michael La Fleur and choreographed by Keith Mottola, the musical is a funny and sentimental tribute to Charles Addams' beloved characters. The whole family is on hand, Gomez, Morticia, Wednesday, Pugsley, Uncle Fester, Grandma, Lurch - and even Thing and Cousin It make it to the party. The show boasts a stellar cast, including Los Angeles star of stage and cabaret, Polly Seal, playing Morticia. The handsome and suave, David Sackel, takes on the role of the irrepressible Gomez, and gifted comedian, Ryan Leverone, is the delightful Uncle Fester. Cara DiPietro and Nathan Krishnasawmi are Wednesday and her beau, Lucas. The production features as cast of multi-talented singer/dancers, and the set is a clever maze of moving walls, gliding stairways, and more than a few surprises lurking in the shadows and under the beds.
