Guess what will be coming to Broadway in the Spring of 2010?!?!?!?!?!?!
THE ADDAMS FAMILY!!!!!!!
YES! YES! YES! The wonderfully macabre family from the 1938 single panel cartooon by cartoonist Charles Addams (in The New Yorker magazine); the 1960s television series; that wonderful Halloween movie (from the ’70s?) they did too; the cartoon version from the late 1970s (and I believe I remember “them” revamping the cartoon in the early ’90s); and the absolutely wonderful movies from the early 1990s, is being remade for Broadway, to open in the Spring of 2010.*
Starring Nathan Lane. Did you get that?!?
NATHAN LANE will be playing Gomez Addams in the Broadway play of The Addams Family
OH! MY! GOD!
Sister lives in Boston, a mere two hours away from this wonderful occurrence.
This. Will. Happen.
Seeing Nathan Lane on Broadway is one of THE dreams. I was lucky enough to see Tim Curry AND David Hyde Pierce AND Hank Azaria starring in Spamalot in 2003 (which was AMAZING!) and that took care of three wonderful and amazing and unbelievable men and he would rank right up there in making me starstruck (which I don’t become very often).
YES! YES! YES!!
*I found the dates from the Wikipedia entry on The Addams Family, seen here.
