The national tour of The Addams Family will cut short its planned three-week run, and now only play Chicago's Cadillac Palace Theatre for one week, December 27-January 1, according to The Chicago Sun-Times.

Based on the bizarre and beloved family of characters created by cartoonist Charles Addams, the musical has a book by Marshall Brickman and Rick Elice, with music and lyrics by Andrew Lippa. The production is directed and designed (sets and costumes) by Phelim McDermott and Julian Crouch, with creative consultation by Jerry Zaks and choreography by Sergio Trujillo.

The tour stars Douglas Sills as Gomez and Sara Gettelfinger as Morticia, along with Martin Vidnovic as Mal Beineke, Crista Moore as Alice Beineke, Blake Hammond as Uncle Fester, Pippa Pearthree as Grandma, Tom Corbeil as Lurch, Patrick D. Kennedy as Pugsley, Brian Justin Crum as Lucas Beineke, and Cortney Wolfson as Wednesday.

Ticket holders should contact their point of purchase for refunds or exchanges for the cancelled dates.
