Continuing the trend of turning everything from my childhood into a Broadway musical, here's a first look at the cast of THE ADDAMS FAMILY. Looks pretty awesome to me, especially Bebe Neuwirth as Morticia, Nathan Lane as Gomez, and Jackie Hoffman as Grandmama. Joing them are Adam Riegler as Pugsley, Krysta Rodriguez as Wednesday, Zachary James as Lurch and Kevin Chamberlin as Uncle Fester. Photo by Mark Seliger for Vanity Fair magazine. Wow, they still publish VF? With all the recent mag deaths (Gourmet, Metropolitan Home, Modern Bride, The Advocate, etc.) I wonder how long till that mag folds?

I recently bought a copy of VF because of their cover stories on Penelope Cruz (love) and Dominick Dunne (love even more). What a pale imitation of what it used to be. I mean, high-school quality writing. Really bad.

Broadway is also such a pale imitation of what it used to be, but I cannot argue with anything that has Bebe Neuwirth. She is one of my absolute faves and has the body from HELL.

No more ADVOCATE?! I didn't hear about that! Anyway, THE ADDAMS FAMILY musical seems intriguing, even though I rather see something original come to Broadway.

I saw The Addams Family last year and loved it! Lane and Neuwirth were fantastic as well as Krysta Rodriguez. The story line and music were very entertaining and tickets weren't cheap, i got them from ...hopefully they do make it on Broadway again.It’s one of my favourite shows; I would see it again in a heartbeat!
