PHOTO EXCLUSIVE: Chaplin Tattoos, Midnight Tech and Mustache Maintenance! A Week at The Muny With Addams Family Star Rob McClure

Tony Award nominee Rob McClure, who stars as Gomez Addams in The Muny production of The Addams Family, takes Playbill readers behind the scenes at the famed outdoor venue where 7 shows are staged back-to-back every summer (with 11 total days of rehearsal each).


Directed by Tony nominee Marcia Milgrom Dodge, The Addams Family will run through July 20. The musical features a score by Lippa and a book by Marshall Brickman and Rick Elice.

The Addams Family bowed on Broadway in 2010. It earned a Tony Award nomination for Best Original Score.

The Muny staging is choreographed by Vince Pesce, with musical direction by Ben Whiteley.

The principal cast also features Jenny Powers as Morticia, 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 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."
