The Addams Family to launch UK tour

Next year the UK will be pulled in a new direction when The Addams Family launches a UK tour!

The Addams Family has music and lyrics by Andrew Lippa with book by Marshall Brickman and Rick Elice. The show, which opened on Broadway in 2010, will launch its tour in Edinburgh on 20th April 2017. 

Wednesday Addams, the ultimate princess of darkness, has grown up and has a shocking secret that only Gomez knows; she’s fallen in love with a sweet, smart young man from a respectable family! Now, Gomez Addams must do something he’s never done before — keep a secret from his beloved wife, Morticia. Everything will change for the whole family on the fateful night they host a dinner for Wednesday’s “normal” boyfriend and his parents. All the usual clan are present - Uncle Fester, Lurch, Pugsley et al.
