There Goes the Neighborhood

Broadway is on the move and may be coming to your neighborhood!

THE MUSICAL PRODUCTION:

Wednesday’s all grown up … and in love.  Although the Broadway edition of the cult classic “The Addams Family” was a runaway audience sensation, the show has been reworked and is hitting the road to tour the United States, Brazil, Scandinavia, and Australia.

Morticia, GomezUncle Fester, Grandma, Wednesday, Pugsley, and Lurch are back full throttle and ready to sing, dance, entertain, and humor the masses in their one-stage antics and vamped-up-from-Broadway performances. While nobody could ever replace our beloved original television cast, a breath of life has been brought to the stage with the current touring production lineup.

THE PLOT:

Childhood goth-sweetheart, Wednesday, has fallen head over heels in love with a straightlaced, intelligent, and respectable guy from the “wrong” side of the tracks.  Gomez becomes aware of her heart-flutterings and decides Morticia need not be made aware of the “small” details.  But his little secret will come tumbling down upon him when the Addams family hosts a dinner for Wednesday’s heartthrob and his family.  Truth, deceit, darkness, and love collide when two seemingly opposite older couples come together for the anticipated union of their children.  Time will tell if little Wednesday makes it down the aisle.

The musical comedy is created by Jersey Boys authors Marshall Brickman & Rick Elice, Drama Desk Award winner Andrew Lippa (The Wild Party), choreographer Sergio Trujillo (Jersey Boys), and Olivier Award-winning director/designers Phelim McDermott & Julian Crouch (Shockheaded Peter), with production supervision by four-time Tony Award winner Jerry Zaks.

So grab your coat and hat … the curtain goes up today in East Lansing, Michigan, followed by the tour’s next stop at Boston’s Shubert Theatre, February 7 through 19.  The full tour schedule can be found HERE.

THE PLEDGE …

Here’s a great way to start a topic of conversation with your kids on the importance of acceptance and tolerance.  For too many years, labels have been attached to one’s appearance … labels that will forever follow an individual.  Or for what may seem like “forever” to a child.  The time has come to accept individuality … to encourage it … to let creative expression and freedom take hold of our youth.  We haven’t been cookie-cutter molds of each other since The Beatles took to the stage with their long hair.  Since that time, each decade has brought about revolutionary waves of music, of style, of talent.  The time has come to formally celebrate the uniqueness of the human spirit.

No Snap Judgments” encourages people to look beyond first impressions and discover how our commonalities outweigh our differences. Through the lens of The Addams Family Musical, the “No Snap Judgments” program empowers us to engage others with openness, respect and acceptance.

Fun Video Day

It’s a lazy, hazy Saturday … completely braindead … and in search of mindless entertainment …

Here’s a video of how 1,500+ CPDRC inmates of the Cebu Provincial Detention and Rehabilitation Center, Cebu, Philippines spend their days.  This isn’t the completed version and we do hope you enjoy the teaser.

And if your Saturday is as lazy as mine has been, thus far, here’s a 20 minute documentary of the prisoners at the maximum security prison of Cebu.  They are considered the most dangerous offenders in the Philippines … murderers, rapists, violent drug criminals … but because of the four hours they dedicate to dancing each day, their behaviour has been transformed.

“Previously, Cebu prison was a wretched place ruled by rival gangs. But when the warden introduced dance lessons, everything changed. ‘Everyone became friends’.  Now the prisoners spend most of the day practising new routines.”

Sending you our wishes for a relaxing and humorous weekend!
