This hit musical is inspired and features songs by Elvis Presley.

NODA Review: The Addams Family

NODA Review: The Addams Family

The Addams family has music and lyrics written by Andrew Lipper from a book by Marshall Brickman and Rick Elice and is based on characters created by Charles Addams from the well-known television series and films of the same name.

This was a very entertaining and enjoyable production from SONG, directed by Karen Edge with musical direction by Charles Moss and choreography from Victoria Harrocks. The young cast who were probably too young to have seen the original television show, entertained us with excellent portrayals of the characters that we know and love with a maturity that belied their age.
