"Two two-time Tony Award winners — Bebe Neuwirth and Nathan Lane — will star in an upcoming reading of The Addams Family musical, according to a production spokesperson."

Read the full article.

"Although Lane and Neuwirth will be part of the August reading, no roles have been cast for the Broadway production, which is scheduled for the 2009-2010 Broadway season following an out-of-town tryout."

Although the article doesn't say, I'd wager that Neuwirth will be reading Morticia, and Lane... I dunno. Fester, maybe?

A friend just sent me this. Apparently I was right about Neuwirth as Morticia, but they've offered the role of Gomez to Lane... Talk about bad casting! Maybe he won't accept.

I can see them casting Lane for the part, but I agree he doesn't have a Gomez vibe. I like him, actually, but not for Gomez.

Oh, I've got nothing against him in general. I just think this is bad casting.

I agree, I don't see him as the Gomez type, though he is a fine performer. Bebe Neuwirth might make a good Mortia, I hope.

I don't know if Neuwirth would have been my first choice, but I certainly think she's good choice.

I’ve been searching on the web trying to find ideas on how to get my personal blog site coded, your present style and theme are wonderful. Did you code it your self or did you recruit a coder to get it done for you personally?.
