The Addams Family takes audiences into the “lovable family of creepy kooks” who are alive and well and living in Central Park. The family, led by the “elegantly gaunt and seemingly undead” Morticia and her ever-devoted husband Gomez, is in turmoil. Their daughter, Wednesday, now 18, finds herself falling in love. When the teen invites her new boyfriend over with his “normal” family to get better acquainted with the Addams household, comic chaos — including everything from mixed-up potions to a scorching tango — ensues.
