"The Addams Family" was an invention of cartoonist Charles Addams, running in The New Yorker for 50 years beginning in 1938. The public attraction to this eccentric and macabre family of anti-socialites has staying power; over the years, the family has been crafted into 2 television shows (live and animated), video games, movies, and now, The Addams Family Musical.
The Thalian Association is giving the Addams Family musical its Wilmington debut on the stage at Thalian Hall. All our favorite characters are on the stage-from Morticia and Gomez to Uncle Fester and Grandmama. The story centers around the coming-of-age of Wednesday and the difficulty the family has letting her go (and gasp! into the arms of a "normal" boy).
Actors Dave Doumeng (Gomez) and Maggie Miller (Morticia) joined us in the studio to talk about the show, which includes music, dancing (including tango), and some pulling on the heart strings the way only the Addams' can. Tickets available here.
