Broadway to Welcome Morticia, Cousin Itt in 2010


Playbill is reporting that a musical version of The Addams Family will premiere in Chicago in 2009, before a Broadway opening the following year. Adds Variety: "The tuner will be based solely on the cartoons, not on the big- or small-screen incarnations. It hasn't yet been determined whether the creatives will be granted permission to include the familiar TV theme song." It can, however, be confirmed that said theme song will be stuck in our head for the rest of the day. [Variety, Playbill]
