Addams Family musical to star Nathan Lane and Bebe Neuwirth Tony-winning stars Nathan Lane and Bebe Neuwirth will star as Gomez and Morticia Addams in the Broadway musical version of The Addams Family, based on Charles Addams’ cartoons about a gruesome, torture-loving nuclear family. Addams’ New Yorker cartoons were so popular that they were turned into a cult TV series and two successful movies. Now they’re coming to Broadway, in a story that producers claim will be more faithful to Addams than any earlier versions. The musical, due to open in November, is written by the people who made the successful Jersey Boys musical. And once you’ve written about Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons, writing about Pugsley and Uncle Fester seems refreshingly normal.
