PHOTO EXCLUSIVE: Chaplin Tattoos, Midnight Tech and Mustache Maintenance! A Week at The Muny With Addams Family Star Rob McClure
16 Jul 2014
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).
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.
