A touring production of Broadway tuner “The Addams Family” will hit the road in September 2011 with a kickoff engagement at the Mahalia Jackson Theater for the Performing Arts in New Orleans.
“The Addams Family,” which opened on the Rialto April 8, was always a no-brainer for a national tour. Musical’s list of producers includes Five Cent Prods., a consortium of regional legit orgs that could potentially benefit from a visit from a splashy offering such as “Addams.”
On the Main Stem, “Addams” has posted $1 million-plus weekly grosses since it began previews in March, and continues to do following a wave of downbeat reviews.
Furthers stops and dates for the tour remain to be confirmed.
