THE ADDAMS FAMILY, now in its second year on Broadway, began performances in March 2010 at the Lunt-Fontanne Theatre and immediately became one of Broadway’s biggest hits. Chris Jones of the Chicago Tribune described the production as “classic, full-tilt, fast paced, old-fashioned musical comedy!” and John Simon of Bloomberg News called it “uproarious! A glitzy-gloomy musical entirely worthy of the macabre drawings by Charles Addams.” The Addams Family features an original story and it's every father’s nightmare. Wednesday Addams, the ultimate princess of darkness, has grown up and fallen in love with a sweet, smart young man from a respectable family. A man her parents have never met. And if that weren't upsetting enough, she confides in her father and begs him not to tell her mother. Now, Gomez Addams must do something he's never done before - keep a secret from his beloved wife, Morticia. Everything will change for the whole family on the fateful night they host a dinner for Wednesday's "normal" boyfriend and his parents. The Addams Family features a book by Marshall Brickman and Rick Elice, and music and lyrics by Andrew Lippa. Visit for more information.

WEST SIDE STORY, a smash hit Broadway revival of a show about New York City that forever changed musical theater more than fifty years ago, is making history once again.

And the extraordinary, Tony®-winning choreography by Jerome Robbins completely changed the language of Broadway dance. This groundbreaking new production, directed by the legendary Mr. Laurents, offers a bold new design that builds on the show’s raw power and emotion to create a fresh experience unlike any that came before it.
