One of our childhood favorite cartoons, the creepy and kooky family is here in Singapore. They began life as a cartoon in 1938, to a real-life television adaptation, to the big screen, and now they’re live on stage.
On the 15th November, THE ADDAMS FAMILY starts performing on stage with their entire clan, whether living, dead or undecided, to the MES Theatre at Mediacorp. Direct from the UK, this production showcases a brand new orchestration and presentation.
Written by Marshall Brickman and Rick Elice, the creators of multi-award-winning Jersey Boys, and music and lyrics by Tony Award-nominated Andrew Lippa, and starring internet sensation, Carrie Hope Fletcher as Wednesday, Cameron Blakely as Gomez (previously seen in Singapore’s Les Misérables as Mr Thenadier), Samantha Womack as Morticia, and Les Dennis as Uncle Fester.
The Addams family musical comedy features an original story and every father’s nightmare (well, mom’s too!). Wednesday Addams, the princess of darkness, has grown up and kept a shocking secret that only Gomez knows. She’s fallen in love with a sweet smart young man from a normal respectable family. And if that weren’t upsetting enough, Wednesday confides in her father and begs him not to tell her mother. Now, Gomez Addams must do something he’s never done before – keeping this secret from his beloved wife, Morticia. Everything will change for the whole family on a fateful night they host a dinner for Wednesday’s ‘normal’ boyfriend and his parents.
A ONCE IN A LIFETIME CHANCE TO TAKE A POSE WITH “THE ADDAMS FAMILY” 😀
It’s always relaxing to watch musical shows that give life to all characters in a most eye-catching way and play by amazing artists. The show is vibrant, organized, and with impressive production and costumes. I loooooove the comedy twist of the story. You’ll surely enjoy it with laughs and laughs in between until the end.
Morticia Addams has been my favorite since, exactly on her trademark look and hand gestures. So that’s how attention to details they are. All the artists standout on stage, giving the right justice to persona they’re playing. Beautiful voices singing all out the emotions of the story, while Wednesday Addams voice is explicitly good.
The show is about 2.5 hours with 15 minutes break. You can still catch them until 3rd December 2017.
