If you haven’t yet seen the classic play, this is the adaptation to see! Cheer for Cyrano! Yearn with him! Gasp at the sword fights! Catch a glimpse of pantaloons, swirling tapestry skirts, and men in tights and pirate shirts!  “Cyrano is a wonderful play, full of sunshine and sadness," said one critic, while another summed up with, "Excellent, stirring, affecting." The wonderfully theatrical elements of Rostand's original classic are all here, yet this English version, by one of England's leading playwrights, gives a modern bite to the play.

In its typical creepy, kooky, mysterious, and spooky fashion, the ghoulish Addams family is visiting the graveyard for an annual gathering of all family members, living dead, and undecided, to celebrate what it is to be an Addams. However, the family encounters an unforeseen obstacle when Wednesday decides to introduce her new “normal” boyfriend Lucas to the family. In protest, Uncle Fester enlists the help of the Addams’ ancestors to call an end to the young budding romance. As Wednesday admits that she is falling in love, Morticia, Gomez, and Pugsley worry about her changing ways. As the families of Wednesday and Lucas come together for dinner one fateful evening, chaos ensues and the two families find themselves admitting deep secrets and coming together in ways they never would have imagined. The Addams Family Broadway Musical tells the story of love and friendship through adversity, with a comical and macabre yet poignant spin.

ABOUT THE PLAY
A female journalist arrives at a monastery in Italy for a surprise interview with a reclusive killer. She is seeking the truth about his brutal murder of a young girl that captured the nation's attention almost 50 years prior. Now, on the eve of the young girl's canonization as a Catholic saint, unwanted questions spark unexpected answers, igniting a final confrontation that forces them both to face the demons of their past. NOTE: This play tells the true story of St. Maria Goretti and her murderer, Alessandro Serenelli. The play features some intense action and mature subject matter.
