Starlight "Addams Family" review by Kristina Light
Simply say “The Addams Family,’’ and fingers start snapping. The Addams Family was first introduced to America in Charles Addams' 1938 The New Yorker cartoon strip, where the characters spookily entertained readers for fifty years. In 1964, they came to life on the campy television sitcom, and again for movies of the 1990s. Now, they're back winning over a new generation with a Broadway musical, a finger-snapping, belly-laughing, fun-filled production running through July 8 at Starlight, where it perfectly made its Kansas City debut under the light of a full moon.
