Favorites From the Day: Addams Family Tour 2.0

Theatre fans may remember that the Broadway musical The Addams Family started a national tour about a year and a half ago now, following its Broadway run. It turns out that though that tour has finished, they are launching a new one with a new cast and yet again, this one is revamped (just like they did when it came from Broadway to a tour). Today on BroadwayWorld.com, I got to cover that tour... twice!

STAGE TUBE: Go Behind the Scenes with the ADDAMS FAMILY Tour!

"Scott Orlesky, technical director and production manager of The Addams Family tour met with Donna Doherty of the New Haven Register to talk about the upcoming national tour, which will launch from New Haven. In this video, he describes how they are 'refitting the show to go out with a brand new cast." (BroadwayWorld.com)

STAGE TUBE: THE ADDAMS FAMILY's Jennifer Fogarty Discusses Family Troubles and More!
"In anticipation of the new Addams Family tour coming to the Auditorium Theatre in Rochester, anchors at ABC 13 spoke to cast member Jennifer Fogarty. Fogarty, who plays Wednesday Addams, talks about her character, 'the princess of darkness,' being able to relate to the Addams Family, and lots more." (BroadwayWorld.com)

The original tour was awesome. I really don't know how they can top it, because it starred one of my favorite actors, Douglas Sills! Then again, I didn't know how they could come close to the Broadway production when I went to see the national tour, but they did a very good job with that.
