It’s time to get singing macabrely with The Addams Family Musical
Who doesn’t love The Addams Family, with their grim family traditions, ghoulishly pale skin and weird obsession for all things macabre? Anyone who has waited a long time to see the original cartoon characters fused with song and music is now rewarded with tickets for The Addams Family. You can find all available shows on StubHub, so there is nothing stopping you from reuniting with Morticia, Gomez and Co.
A musical, family get-together with lots of black humour
Those who know the Addams Family from the cartoon or many movie adaptations will know their lifestyle is not for the faint of heart. A little torture session amid siblings has never done any harm, and gruesome potions, howling at the moon and some graveyard happenings are ordinary family rituals. If you love the sinister, yet entertaining, atmosphere The Addams Family brings on, you will love the musical adaptation that immerses you in a vibe suggesting it’s Halloween all year round. The story for the musical was written by Marshall Brickman and Rick Elice and opens with a graveyard family reunion where the lifestyle of the iconic family is celebrated. Misunderstandings, conundrums and love issues ensue, proving the macabre family is unusually ordinary when it comes to the biggest things in life like love, marriage, betrayal and being called a goat by your husband (will Morticia forgive Gomez?). With its off-Broadway start in 2009, the musical made the jump to the big stage in 2010 and managed to net a Drama League Award and Drama Desk Award, among some others. With the family celebrating fans all over the world, it didn’t take long to become an international success and has toured through the UK, as well as featuring in Brazil, Sweden and Finland, to name just a few countries. With a few clicks, you can buy or sell your tickets for The Addams Family Musical on StubHub—it’s convenient, easy and safe.
Tonys, bucketloads of fans and more
Critics may have received the musical differently since its inception, but the Tony Awards don’t lie. The awards are the most important in the musical world and the Broadway show was nominated for not only one but two in 2010. Apart from that, the Chicago production also hauled a Jeff Award and the UK version won a WhatsOnStage Award for Best Actress in Musical. The musical also grossed third behind massively popular and well-established musicals like Wicked and The Lion King. Being sold out regularly, it is high time to secure your The Addams Family tickets on StubHub and let the gruesomeness begin. Other shows you might like could be Sweeney Todd and The Rocky Horror Show.
