Ara Goes to the Addams Family Musical!

 Well my amazing wonderful husband got me tickets to see the Addams family musical here in Dallas!!!!  How lucky am I!  And he sprang for the good seats!!!


 I went for a "Wednesday goes to Texas" outfit!  I decided to dress up because... why not!?

Even painted my nails black and I haven't done that since Jr. High!
 To my surprise they had tv and movie props on display at the theater!!!  This was an added bonus for me!!  Love the "Lurchy" guy in the middle there.  All the signs said these were props from the 1960's tv show, but there were some obvious ones from the movies.  I don't know why they didn't say "TV show and Movies..."  Maybe they thought no one would notice ;)





Like this one is from the movie Addams Family Values... Debbie Jellinsky was played by Joan Cusack.  Her character married Uncle Fester.


They also had an organ!  I am thinking this might also be a movie prop because in the TV show Lurch played a harpsichord but it might have been in the background somewhere.  I am not sure.  I was excited to see it because of the one I made special for the mansion here.  It had the white buttons and everything!


After this photo with the organ an usher made me take my camera to the car because you can't take pics inside (the props were in the lobby).  I told him I wouldn't but I guess he didn't believe me!

The Musical was amazing!  The songs and the story line were fun and funny!  I don't think I laughed so much in a musical before.  They had several Addams inside jokes too.  For example, they make a  joke that Morticia and Gomez don't know who's mother Grandmama is!  Referring to the fact that she is Gomez's mother in the TV show and Morticia's mother in the movie!  Hilarious!

 I did have one thing I didn't like about the production we saw but I will keep it to myself so others can enjoy!  And it was just so amazing I hate to say anything bad!  You should all definitely see it if you get the chance!

Also I kind of felt special because they were selling the book "The Addams Family; An Evilution" which I was sent to review back in March 2010.  I felt like I was an Addams expert or something :)  Although no one around me knew it!

Thank you, thank you, thank you sweet husband for the tickets!!!  You are the Gomez to my Morticia!  Love, Ara
