In a prolific career spanning six decades, Charles Addams created several thousand cartoons, sketches and drawings, many of which were famously published in The New Yorker. But it was his creation of characters that came to be known as The Addams Family that brought Addams his greatest acclaim. With a unique style that combined the twisted, macabre and just plain weird with charm, wit and enchantment, Addams' drawings of Gomez, Morticia, Fester, Wednesday, Pugsley, Grandmama, Lurch and Thing have entertained millions worldwide and served as the inspiration for multiple television series and motion pictures. "It's an extraordinary privilege as well as a daunting responsibility being entrusted with Charles Addams' most beloved creations, but I'm confident this outstanding creative team is re-imagining the work in a way that would have made Charlie proud," said producer Stuart Oken of Elephant Eye Theatrical. Tickets are now available to groups of 20 or more by calling (312) 977-1710. THE ADDAMS FAMILY will be a part of the Broadway In Chicago Season Series. Season subscription packages will go on sale to new subscribers beginning November 21, 2008. The individual ticket pricing and on-sale date will be announced at a later date.
