    • We flew to Chicago last weekend with incredible excitement and anticipation to see The ADDAMS FAMILY.
      IT WAS A COMPLETE bust…TRHE STORYLINE IS TERRIBLE AND THERE ARE SCENES THAT ARE JUST PATHETIC AND MAKE NO SENSE…NOT NONSENSE AS WE EXPECTED. THE MUSIC IS COMPLETELY FORGETTABLE AND NATHAN LANE & BEBE NEUWIRTH SLEEP THROUGH THEIR ROLES…NITHING REALLY FUNUNY OR LIKEABLE ABOUT ANY OF TEHE FAMILY MEMBERS..ALMOST LIKE THEY KNOW THEY ARE IN A LOSER OF A PLAY. THIS WILL NEED A COMPLETE MAKEOVER BEFORE BROADWAY.
      I ACTUALLY BOO’D AT THE END AND THE AUDIENCE LEFT AFTER POLITE APPLAUSE IN SILENCE. JUST A HUGE DISAPPOINTMENT – DO NOT WASTE YOUR MONEY

  1. I really enjoyed the Addams Family. Perhaps being “middled aged” helped in making the storyline meaningful. Many of the songs were memorable to me and I look forward to the CD. As for the performances, they were not all wonderful, but plenty of them were outstanding. This is still a work in progress and I have high hopes for a long run on Broadway.
