The Addams Family Northampton's background
The Addams Family musical was adapted from the beloved comic strip by Charles Addams, which also spawned a television show and several other adaptations. With lyrics by Andrew Lippa and a book born of the collaboration of Marshall Brickman and Rick Elice, The Addams Family is the hilarious story of what happens when an all-grown-up Wednesday brings her new and very normal boyfriend, Lucas, and his parents home for dinner. Chaos ensues as the two families learn to get along with each other and couples fight and make up as hidden secrets are revealed and true natures come into the open.
The Addams Family had its initial trial run in Chicago in 2009, eventually opening in Broadway's Lunt-Fontanne Theatre in April 2010 with stars such as Nathan Lane (as Gomez). The Broadway run lasted through December 2011; today, the Addams Family is on tour throughout the United States. Meanwhile, the United Kingdom saw the premiere of the Addams Family musical in April 2017 at the Edinburgh Festival Theatre before the show embarked on a sweeping tour of the United Kingdom at large.
The Addams Family musical was recognised with several prestigious awards. In 2010, it received the Drama Desk Award for Outstanding Set Design, as well as the Outer Critics Circle Award, also for Set Design. Finally, it earned original cast member Nathan Lane the Distinguished Achievement in Musical Theatre Award at the Drama League Awards.
