This follows a highly successful premiere tour in 2017. 2020 will once again be directed by Matthew White.
The story focuses on Wednesday Addams, the ultimate princess of darkness who has grown up and has a shocking secret that only Gomez knows; she has fallen in love with a sweet, smart young man from a respectable family!
Now, Gomez Addams must do something he’s never done before — keep a secret from his beloved wife, Morticia. Everything will change for the whole family on the fateful night they host a dinner for Wednesday’s “normal” boyfriend and his parents. All the usual clan are present – Uncle Fester, Lurch, Pugsley et al.
