Broadway’s Halloween Offering
Since it is still Halloween, it only seems appropriate to mention a new Broadway-aimed musical that Daddycatcher is really excited about: THE ADDAMS FAMILY.
The new musical, based on the comic cartoons by Charles Addams, will have a score by Andrew Lippa (Off-Broadway’s The Wild Party) and a book by Marshall Brickman and Rick Elice (Jersey Boys). Playbill is reporting that a pre-Broadway tryout will take place in Chicago beginning November 2009.
Daddycatcher thinks the casting of Bebe Neuwirth as Morticia Addams is inspired but is somewhat dubious over the casting of Nathan Lane as Gomez Addams. Daddycatcher also is not a big fan of Nathan Lane. Not a fan at all!
Daddycatcher thinks that after he finishes watching Hocus Pocus tonight he’ll pop in The Addams Family movies!!!
