Girl meets boy. Boy likes girl. It’s the age-old story of young love, but with a creepy twist.
Directed by four-time Tony Award winner Jerry Zaks, “The Addams Family” is a ghoulish, dark and witty live musical comedy featuring the infamous family in an original story about dysfunctional, family dynamics.

When the families get together for a haunting dinner at the Addams’ residence,, things turn eerie, and humorous, as both families deal with their childrens’ love for one another.
