The Addams Family played Broadway’s Lunt-Fontanne Theatre from March 2010 – December 2011 where it grossed more than $85 million. Chris Jones of the Chicago Tribune described the production as “classic, full-tilt, fast paced, old-fashioned musical comedy!” and John Simon of Bloomberg News called it “Uproarious! A glitzy-gloomy musical entirely worthy of the macabre drawings by Charles Addams.” The North American tour of The Addams Family premiered in New Orleans in September 2011 and has played more than 350 performances to date. Richard Ouzounian of the Toronto Star called the production a “wackily entertaining musical […] that moves with breezy style and an open heart” and Robert Trussell of the Kansas City Star praised it as “first class [with] unexpected pleasure at almost every turn.”
