REVIEW: THE ADDAMS FAMILY (New Wimbledon Theatre) ★★★★

I feel quite smug being able to say this if the fourth time I have seen The Addams Family musical, given that this is its UK premiere. I managed to catch it on Broadway back in 2010 and have also seen a couple of am-dram productions in London. This new version lives up to all […]
