In honor of The Addams Family arriving in their usual eccentric style May 8th, the Ordway will be presenting fans with an inside look every Wednesday at how the beloved cartoons of Charles Addams were transformed into the Broadway hit. These “Wednesday Webisodes” will provide you with a glimpse into the whimsical imaginations of the creative team who found them as darkly endearing as you. Hear from the authors, director, composer and design team as well as a few original cast members!
This week Andrew Lippa explains his inspiration and the creative process behind the unforgettable music and lyrics of The Addams Family in "What Does a Cartoon Sound Like?".
