In fact, let the song do the talking:
“They’re creepy and they’re kooky,
Mysterious and spooky,
They’re all together ooky,
The Addams Family
Their house is a museum,
When people come to see ‘em
They really are a screa-um
The Addams Family.
Credit to all the leads who were fabulous in their respective roles.
The action moved at a pace as did the choreography thanks to Angela Edwards.
The costumes and chorus – appropriately like something out of the Living Dead – were outstanding.
The chorus was also full of character and characters – look carefully and there was Marilyn Monroe, a flapper and a 1950s teenager.
The show was an unusual a choice as the family – and a triumph.
