Tony Award nominees Rob McClure (Chaplin) and Jenny Powers (Grease) will star as Gomez and Morticia Addams, respectively, in the U.S. regional premiere of Andrew Lippa's The Addams Family, which will bow at the St. Louis Muny this summer.
The Addams Family bowed on Broadway in 2010. It earned a Tony Award nomination for Best Original Score.
The Muny staging will be choreographed by Vince Pesce, with musical direction by Ben Whiteley.
The principal cast will also feature John Scherer as Mal Beineke, Hollis Resnik as Alice Beineke, Steve Rosen as Uncle Fester, Jennifer Cody as Grandma, William Ryall as Lurch, Dan DeLuca as Lucas Beineke, Sara Kapner as Wednesday Addams and Michael Harp as Pugsley Addams.
The Muny production will have 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."
Single tickets will be available beginning May 31 at The Muny Box Office in Forest Park, online or by phone. For more information call (314) 361-1900 or visit muny.org.
