Check out the first picture of the Chicago cast of The Addams Family — including Nathan Lane as Gomez and Bebe Neuwirth as Morticia. Plus it’s hard to believe, but Carrie: The Musical is back!
This picture, which was released in Vanity Fair, shows the brand new musical cast for The Addams Family, which is opening in Chicago. And if all goes well, it will head to New York city’s Broadway. The musical’s site actually has a lot of brilliant little videos detailing this family’s journey from The New Yorker to television and eventually to the stage.
In other musical news Stephen King’s Carrie is amping up for its big Broadway debut and has cast Molly Ranson as Carrie, Sutton Foster as gym teacher Ms. Gardner, Marin Mazzie as Margaret White, and Jennifer Damiano as Sue. But that’s not all: American Idol contestant Diana DeGarmo is in the cast somewhere as well.
Carrie: The Musical was one of Broadway’s most legendary disasters several years ago, crashing and burning despite being a co-production with the Royal Shakespeare Company. It’s become a legendary symbol of excess — here’s a TV spot for the original production. But this new take will supposedly be very different. But you should definitely skim Youtube for old videos from the classic 1988 production — the opening scene “IN” is especially horrifying.
