14 Jul 2014
Tony Award nominees Rob McClure (Chaplin) and Jenny Powers (Grease) co-star as Gomez and Morticia Addams, respectively, in the U.S. regional premiere of Andrew Lippa's The Addams Family, which begins July 14 at the St. Louis Muny.
The Muny production has scenic design by Michael Schweikardt, sound design by Jason Krueger, lighting design by Nathan Scheuer, video design by Seth Jackson and costume design by Andrea Lauer.
According to the Muny, "Charles Addams’ classical and creepy characters – Gomez, Morticia, Pugsley, Lurch and even Uncle Fester – take the stage this summer in a riotous Broadway musical. In a wicked twist, Wednesday Addams, the ultimate daughter of darkness, has fallen for a perfectly respectable and sweet young man."

Holed up in a seedy motel on the edge of the Mojave Desert, two former lovers unpack the deep secrets and dark desires of their tangled relationship, passionately tearing each other apart. Led by director Daniel Aukin (Back Back Back at MTC, 4,000 Miles), Tony winner Nina Arianda (Venus in Fur at MTC, Born Yesterday) and Sam Rockwell (A Behanding in Spokane, The Way Way Back) bring an explosive intensity to Sam Shepard’s (Buried Child, True West) landmark myth of the new Wild West.
