Those of you who saw THE ADDAMS FAMILY in Chicago or on Broadway saw a different version of the musical than this new touring company presentation. The central conflict is new, there’s added choreography, retooled orchestrations, and three brand-new songs. Diane and I loved the TV version starring Carolyn Jones and John Astin back in the Sixties. And, of course, we loved the Charles Addams’ cartoons in The New Yorker. We’ll see if this musical can bring Morticia and Gomez to life on the stage tonight.
