Lithuanian premieres worked on the premiere at the National Operetta of Ukraine: director-producer and filmmaker Kestutis Stasis Jakshtas, production artist Gintaras Makarevicius and choreographer-director Dainius Bervingis, as well as famous Ukrainian artists: conductor-producer - People's Artist of Ukraine director - Victoria Streicha, choirmaster - Sergei Nesteruk.
The Broadway musical The Addams Family is a musical version of a legendary story about an infernal wizarding family, one that actually does good by striving for evil.
The events revolve around the new admiration of the daughter of the Addams Wednesday (Wednesday) "normal" guy Lucas Beineke.
The acquaintance of the two families should take place at a dinner party, which is planned to be arranged by the Addams. Wednesday and Lucas give detailed instructions to parents on what to do to make dinner go well. The only thing that the concept of "normal" each family interprets differently…
- This is a well-known story that does not lose its popularity, which everyone knows well from TV series and movies. The story of a family that, from other people's point of view, does not live by the rules of the majority, says director Kestutis Stasis Jakshtas, but in reality they live right: with dignity, respect for each other, with love, keeping promises . The musical reminds us that the most important thing in life is family. And this is very important and relevant in our time, because families fall apart due to trifles, small quarrels, domestic differences. Many people forget that it is worth looking for common solutions, to seek understanding!
Composer - Andrew Lipp.
Libretto - Marshall Brickman, Rica Ellis.

* Speaking about the scenery, the artist-director of the musical Gintaras Makarevicius, notes:
- We tried to create a contrast between the light feelings of the Addams family and the dark "otherworldly" scenery, enhancing the dramatic effect. At the same time, the stage decisions are very dynamic, the light is constantly changing and the scenery does not press unambiguously, but simulates the development of exciting events.
