The Addams Family in Portland

The Keller Auditorium has a fun show this weekend.  This past Wednesday I joined my family on opening night of The Addams Family Musical.  My 4 year old son loved it and so did my 13 year old.  I enjoyed it, too, and the Uncle Fester sketch  below is from my favorite number, “The Moon and Me.”  It captures the dark strangeness of the Addams’ vibe while offering up a unique spectacle that would make Jim Henson proud.  That’s all I’ll give away.

When the daylight ends and the moon ascends,
I would rather be just the moon and me.
When I feel her pull, then my heart is full.
And the night is softly, sweetly calling:
“Fester, look and see.”

La la la la la la
La la la la la
La la la la la
It’s a dream that’s coming true
when the moon says “I love you”.

Though I’m told it’s wrong
when I sing my song
she accepts, she attends
she believes, she befriends.

La la la la la la
(ohh la la la)
La la la la la
(ooh la la la)
La la la la la
(ooh la la la)
It’s a dream that’s coming true
when the moon says “I love you”.

How it can feel when love is real.

-Lyrics to The Moon And Me by Kevin Chamberlin
