Maybe you’re ready for a short break from all of the cheery traditional holiday celebrating. Maybe you’re ready for something a little on the dark side—not too much, just a little deliciously wicked fun. If so, you really must see THE ADDAMS FAMILY at ASU Gammage in Tempe. Yes, the whole strange and creepy family, including Gomez, Morticia, Uncle Fester, Grandma, Wednesday, Pugsley and, of course, Lurch will welcome you and yours at ASU Gammage, December 11-16.
The Addams Family came to life in the eerily funny cartoons by Charles Addams in the New Yorker magazine several decades ago. During the 60s and 70s they had their own popular TV series and during the 90s made it to the big screen in two very funny movies. In 2010 they hit Broadway and now this smash-hit musical comedy is coming to Tempe. So come meet the family. They’ll keep the lights off for you.
