Auditorio de Tenerife welcomes The Addams Family , the Broadway musical.
In the world of The Addams Family being sad means being happy, foolishness is sensible, feeling pain equals joy, being imprudent is prudent and death and suffering are the stuff dreams are made of. However, this peculiar family is about to face one of the spookiest nightmares common to every parent: the children are growing up.
For hundreds of years, Gómez and Morticia have tried to keep the genuine, special and unique Addams values, but however much they wish to go on living in that harmony, something quite unexpected is going to happen: their macabre and dear daughter Wednesday has fallen in love with Lucas Beineke, a sweet, loving, and intelligent boy from a “normal”, respectable Ohio family.
No one does really approve of the couple but to make matters even worse, Wednesday has invited the Beinekes to dinner.
Welcome to an ill-fated, ominous, and hilarious evening at the Addams’s, where the best-kept secrets will be revealed, relationships, love affairs and friendships will be under scrutiny and the whole of the Addams family -ancestors included- will be forced to face the one single terrible thing they have managed to avoid for generations: change.
The show, which puts on stage the characters created by illustrator Charles Addams, is directed by Esteve Ferrer and produced by Letsgo (who has also produced titles like Dirty Dancing, The Hole, The Hole 2 and The Hole Zero) with their characteristic special effects.
The comedy, based on Brickmann and Elice’s libretto, includes music by Andrew Lippa. Touring started at the Ford Center for the Performing Arts Oriental Theatre in Chicago in 2009 and went on to the Lunt-Fontanne Theatre on Broadway in 2010, where it was hugely successful.
Known through the 1960s TV adaptation, The Addams Family hit the big screen in 1991 and since then this peculiar family has undergone numerous film adaptations.
