A rich performance is turned in by the brassy Jennifer Fogarty as Wednesday; she balances a quirky romance with a deadpan Goth twist. Jesse Sharp as Gomez is a fitting find; he captures with his undying (or dying) love for Morticia.
Top scenes include a tango featuring Sharp, KeLeen Snowgren as Morticia and ghostly ancestors. The second act also includes a clever solo by Shaun Rice as Uncle Fester floating in air while singing a love song to a balloon moon.
As we remember from the TV show's theme song, this offbeat family is ooky and spooky. Likewise, "The Addams Family" musical is campy, kooky and fun.
