Feathers get ruffled and households upended in this poignant tale of one family's struggle to stay together, stay fabulous and above all else, stay true to themselves.

Sit back and savor the horrific hospitality of Gomez, Morticia, Pugsley, Grandma, Lurch and everyone's favorite weirdo, Uncle Fester, as the special occasion brings out the best -- and worst -- in everyone involved. The award-winning team behind the magnificently macabre The Addams Family includes authors Marshall Brickman and Rick Elice (Jersey Boys) and composer-lyricist Andrew Lippa (The Wild Party).
