They’re creepy and they’re kooky: snap, snap. For decades, this delightfully ghastly television family were the antithesis to Leave It To Beaver. Instead of wholesome and normal, the Addams' were fascinated with death, gloom and the macabre. And this week at the Segerstrom Center, your favorite characters―Gomez, Lurch, Uncle Fester, Wednesday, Pugsley and the sexy Morticia―come back in a musical. From the creators of Jersey Boys, this performance tells the story of a grown-up Wednesday who, instead of finding an equally grim boyfriend, decides to bring home a nice young man from a respectable family. Critics are calling this performance visually spectacular and hilarious. Don’t miss this wonderfully original and creepy musical.
