The AP is reporting that “The Addams Family” musical will have its Broadway opening on April 8 at the Lunt-Fontanne Theatre. Nathan Lane is Gomez, Bebe Neuwirth is Morticia, Kevin Chamberlin is Uncle Fester, Jackie Hoffman is Grandma and Zachary James is Lurch. Andrew Lippa created the music and lyrics. Marshall Brickman and Rick Elice, authors of “Jersey Boys,” wrote the book.
(Is Robbie Bourget still into the Addams Family as she once was? Then book that flight!)

And the show has its pre-Broadway run in Chicago, opening the same day as Windycon (November 13) and running until January 10. I know the Windycon Author GoH is planning on seeing it while he’s in town.
Is is a failure of my imagination, or am I not the only person who simply cannot see in their mind Nathan Lane nuzzling Bebe Neuwirth’s arm after a cry of “Tish! You spoke French!”
