The Addams Family - A Broadway Family Musical Comedy

Atlantis Productions ends its 14th season with the hit Broadway family musical comedy 'The Addams Family' featuring an all-star cast.

The Addams Family is a smash-hit Broadway musical comedy for the whole family that brings the darkly delirious world of Gomez, Morticia, Uncle Fester, Grandma, Wednesday, Pugsley and, of course, Lurch to spooky and spectacular life. This magnificently macabre new musical comedy is created by Jersey Boys authors Marshall Brickman & Rick Elice, Drama Desk-winning composer/lyricist Andrew Lippa.

The musical features an original story, and it’s every father’s nightmare. Wednesday Addams, the ultimate princess of darkness, has grown up and fallen in love with a sweet, smart young man from a respectable family. A man her parents have never met. And if that weren’t upsetting enough, she confides in her father and begs him not to tell her mother. 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.

Heading the star studded cast is film, television and stage actress Eula Valdes, last seen on the Atlantis stage as Claudia in NINE, and Arnel Ignacio, last seen on stage in THE FULL MONTY. Eula takes on the iconic role of Morticia Addams, made famous in the hit films by Anjelica Huston and Arnel plays her husband, Gomez Addams.

Kla Rivera, who received an Aliw Award nomination for Best Actress in a Musical for her musical theater debut in Atlantis’ In The Heights as Nina and then played the feisty Princess Jasmine in Disney’s Aladdin to critical acclaim last year, is set to play the teenage “Princess of Darkness” Wednesday Addams.

Los Angeles based singer Ryan Gallagher will be playing the role of Lucas Beineke, the “normal” boy who falls in love with Wednesday Addams and triggers an unforgettable, laugh filled evening of events as the two families come together on “one normal night.” Ryan has performed many shows in Los Angeles and Las Vegas and has sung with several Filipino artists including Lea Salonga and Lani Misalucha.

Garcia says, “It has always been a great way for us to end the year and start off the holiday season with a family musical comedy. And this year The Addams Family is that show. It’s wacky, zany good fun that really celebrates and sends up the Broadway musical comedy form. And it is perfect for the entire family. Snap! Snap!

'The Addams Family' runs from November 15 to December 1, 2013 at the Meralco Theater.
