The Addams Family: A New Musical at the Meralco Theater.

When I heard from my friend Dianne Lee that my favorite cartoon was made into a musical here in the Philippines, I just had to watch it!

"THE ADDAMS FAMILY features as original story, and it’s every father’s nightmare. Wednesday Addams, the ultimate princess of darkness, has grown up and fallen in love with a sweet, smart young man from a respectable family – a man her parents never met.

And if that weren’t upsetting enough, Wednesday confides in her father and begs him not to tell her mother. Now Gomez Addams must do something he’s never done before – keep a secret from his beloved wife, Morticia.

Everything will change for the whole family on the fateful night they host a dinner for Wednesday’s ‘normal’ boyfriend and his parents."

The venue is at the Meralco Theater.  Photographs are strictly prohibited but I managed to sneak in a photo when the curtains went down at the end of the play.  Sorry, couldn't help it!

The cast is star-studded with Eula Valdes as Morticia Addams and Arnel Ignacio as Gomez Addams.   They were great!  Both received a standing ovation from the audience after the performance.  It's directed by Bobby Garcia.

Although I love broadway, I never claimed to be an expert so I won't post a critique of the musical.  But let me say this.. T doesn't really like plays or musicals so I usually watch with my friends or his mom and sister.  But this time, he was laughing almost the entire play. 

We tried to have a group photo after the show but even with the lights already on and the theater already almost empty, the usherette wouldn't let us.  So, we just took one beside the poster outside.
