Frightfully Fabulous Family Time!
Even before the show started I was in awe of the ghoulishly gothic and gorgeous set and then the lights dimmed, the fingers start snapping and the magic begins as the kookiest family of them all take to the stage.
The Addams Family have graced our TV and cinema screens for over 50 years and this production has a perfectly cast ensemble to play the iconic death obsessed family that everyone loves.
Les Dennis is fantastic as Uncle Fester, he has some great numbers in the show and his lovable character brings much giggles. Samantha Womack and Cameron Blakely are superb as Morticia & Gomez, they pay great tribute to every actor before them that played these roles possessing all the chemistry and charisma that made these parents the most devilish yet delicious couple of all time. Both actors deliver huge numbers and dance a tango worthy of a Strictly Trophy! Carrie Hope Fletcher makes a perfect Wednesday and judging by the huge crowd at stage door dressed like Wednesday I think it's fair to say she's a huge hit in this role. Carrie was flawless and probably better than any Wednesday I've seen on tv or screen.
The Addams Family (The Musical) has it all, a great score, giggles, gouls and gorgeous sets. The choreography is slick and the songs are big and catchy, you'll be foot tapping and snapping your fingers as they dance and sing through two hours of mischievous musical theatre.
Recommended for anyone from 3yrs to 300yrs The Addams Family appeals to everyone, it's a great night out and quite possibly the best musical touring the UK right now.
The show runs from 1st August until 12th of August at The Wales Millennium Theatre.
