ABOUT MUSICAL

THE ADDAMS FAMILY is a family musical with fantastic music and intelligent humor, full of satirical exaggeration and inversion. Since its premiere at the Karlin Musical Theatre in Fall 2014 the show has reached almost 120 performances till May 2017. And now it is back in full swing.

Cartoonist Charles Addams created his characters of the Addams family back in 1938. Following fifty years he was drawing his macabre characters for The New Yorker Magazine. The family of Addams is a satiric contradiction of typical American family. They indulge in black and macabre humor and are seemingly unaware or unconcerned that other people find them bizarre or frightening.

 

The growing popularity of 150 single-panel cartoons published in The New Yorker inspired other artists to use these peculiar characters. In 1964, a live action television series premiered on ABC and subsequently inspired a 1977 television film. An unrelated animated series aired in 1973 - 1975. The franchise was revived in the 1990s with a feature film series consisting of The Addams Family (1991) and Addams Family values (1993) and another cartoon series (1992).

In May 2007, it was announced that a musical inspired by The Addams Family drawings by Charles Addams was being developed for the Broadway stage. Broadway veterans Marshall Brickman and Rick Elice wrote the book, and Andrew Lippa wrote the score.

The musical opened in previews at the Lunt-Fontanne Theatre on Broadway on March 8, 2010, with an official opening on April 8, after an out-of-town tryout in Chicago at the Ford Center for the Performing Arts from November 13, 2009 to January 10, 2010. The Broadway production ran for 22 months, closing on December 31, 2011, after 35 previews and 722 performances. Since then, the musical has been seen all over the world.

The original cast featured big stars as Nathan Lane, known as Max Bialystock from The Producers (also seen at our theatre) and Bebe Neuwirth, original Velma Kelly from Chicago, the Musical (also seen at the Karlin Musical Theatre).

The performance contains English subtitles.
