New York Musical Previews & Other News

As you may or may not know, there has been much Addams Family news of late. Between the musical previewing in New York, talk of a possible new film adaption by Tim Burton, and an Addams Family book recently released, there has been more than a little news that has gone without coverage in this blog.

This post is a brief list of some highlights that might be worth checking out.

In musical news, by all accounts, the show being preformed in New York is substantially different to that which was seen in Chicago. There is an interesting summary of some of the changes made in this post on (beware that some spoilers are contained).

Also, there have been many updates on the official musical's homepage, including cast interviews, cast album release dates, and video interviews with the some of the crew. If you haven't visited the site in a while, it may be about time to stop in.

The Addams Family Blog has been doing a great job of keeping up-to-date with some of the more recent news, including keeping updated on Charles Addams art showings that are going on in New York. Again, I highly recommend checking this site out, too, if you haven't already.

Finally, there has been quite a boom in Addams Family fanfiction writing, as evident on Between the fanfiction and Wednesday Addams's twitter account, there should hopefully be enough to keep fans busy between the blog updates posted here. Happy reading!
