BWW Reviews: THE ADDAMS FAMILY Tour Proves Lackluster, Now Through 4/22BWW Reviews: THE ADDAMS FAMILY Tour Proves Lackluster, Now Through 4/22
by Vicky Croisant - Apr 12, 2012

Since their creation in the 1930s by cartoonist Charles Addams, the Addams Family clan - Gomez, Morticia, Wednesday, Pugsley and Uncle Fester - has managed to infiltrate popular culture. Whether it's singing along to the finger-snapping theme song from the 1960s television show or instant recognition of the macabre characters, most everyone has a connection to the Addamses. That's one reason the touring production of THE ADDAMS FAMILY was so disappointing. (more...)
