In The Addams Family A New Musical Comedy, that loveable family of creepy kooks is alive and well and living in their super-spooky mansion in Central Park. The family, led by the elegantly gaunt and seemingly undead Morticia and her ever-devoted husband, Gomez, is in turmoil. Their daughter, Wednesday, now 18, finds herself falling in love — a sensation that is unsettling for both her and her family of endearing misfits. When the teen invites her new boyfriend, Lucas Beineke, over with his “normal” family to get better acquainted with the Addams household, comic chaos ensues.
