tickets on sale for The Addams Family Musical on Broadway

In case you missed it, tickets are on sale for The Addams Family Musical set to hit Broadway in spring of 2010. I've already got my ticket for March. I read about the Lunt-Fontanne Theatre on Yelp.com before purchasing a ticket and went for a 4th row front mezzanine seat. It is not cheap, but I am not holding out until I get to Times Square in hopes to finding a half-price, same-day ticket. When I searched Yelp, I noticed someone commented, paraphrasing, that if you sit below the mezzanine in the rear orchestra, you may not have a full view of the area high above the stage. This fact may or may not matter, depending on how the show is using any stage scenery. I'm not taking my chances.

If you cannot wait that long, then you can see it in the Windy City sometime between Nov. 13-Jan. 10 during its pre-Broadway world premiere run at the Ford Center/Oriental Theatre.

Who's playing Wednesday? Krysta Rodriguez - you can find her in videos online. I have to be objective that the director wants great singers who have great stage presence and from what I've seen, I have no problem with Rodriguez playing Wednesday. It's a separate production from the television shows and the movies and I hope Rodriguez can bring a part of her own dark humor to her performance as Wednesday.

I saw The Addams Family last year and loved it! Lane and Neuwirth were fantastic as well as Krysta Rodriguez. The story line and music were very entertaining and tickets weren't cheap, i got them from Ticketsinventory.com ...hopefully they do make it on Broadway again.
It’s one of my favourite shows; I would see it again in a heartbeat!
