The complete cast of the upcoming Addams Family musical has just been announced. It will star Nathan Lane as Gomez and Bebe Neuwirth as Morticia. Joining them will be Terence Mann (Beauty and the Beast, Les Miserables) as Mal Beineke, two-time Tony Award nominee Carolee Carmello (Parade, Lestat) as Alice Beineke, two-time Tony Award nominee, Kevin Chamberlin (Seussical, Dirty Blonde) as Uncle Fester, Jackie Hoffman (Hairspray, Xanadu) as Grandmama, Zachary James (South Pacific) as Lurch, Adam Riegler as Pugsley, Wesley Taylor (Rock of Ages) as Lucas Beineke and Krysta Rodriguez (In the Heights) as Wednesday.

The musical will be based on the drawings of Charles Addams and not the movies or TV shows. It will also feature music and lyrics by Andrew Lippa (The Wild Party) with a book by Marshall Brickman and Rick Elice (the librettists of Jersey Boys). Out of town tryouts will be here in Chicago at the Ford Oriental Theatre and will open on Nov. 12, 2009. Broadway opening is scheduled for March 4, 2010.
