Will people come and see'em?
Bebe Neuwirth really is perfect casting as Morticia in the new Addams Family Musical.
The Addams Family stars the undisputed king of Broadway musicals, Nathan Lane, as the gallant, dapper layabout Gomez. (The irrepressible Lane even looks like a living cartoon.) The smashing Bebe Neuwirth makes for inspired casting as the slinky matriarchal goth, Morticia.
They certainly look a lot like the original cast, don't they?
It will be interesting to see how this does. Although it sounds like a good idea, I also thought that "9 to 5" and "Young Frankenstein" would do well on Broadway.
Not so much.
Here is a fun behind-the-scenes video of the photo shoot of the cast for the upcoming Vanity Fair issue.
