Carolee Carmello, Jackie Hoffman, Zachary James, Wesley Taylor, Adam Riegler, and Krysta Rodriguez from the Broadway cast of The Addams Family joined the musical's composer Andrew Lippa at a launch event for The Addams Family cast album, held at Barnes & Noble Bookstore (Lincoln Square) on Thursday, July 15.

Rodriguez, Taylor and Riegler performed numbers from the show including "Crazier Than You," "Pulled," and "What If." The event also featured the cast and composer signing autographs.

The musical -- which also stars Nathan Lane, Terrence Mann, and Kevin Chamberlin -- is currently playing the Lunt-Fontanne Theatre. Based on the iconic characters created by legendary cartoonist Charles Addams, the musical features a book by Marshall Brickman and Rick Elice, and direction and design (sets and costumes) by Phelim McDermott and Julian Crouch, with creative consultation by Jerry Zaks and choreography by Sergio Trujillo.

The album marks the launch of Decca Theatricals, and is its first major venture as a Broadway producer. Its recording division, Decca Broadway, is the world's largest producer of Broadway cast albums.
