Charisse said on the red carpet, "It is unbelievable. I never thought it would come true but it finally happened."

Hugh responded, "(It is) my wish too, let me be honest. I heard from Charisse and she wanted to come and meet me. I said, 'how about a date and going to a Broadway opening?'"

The Addams Family stars two-time Tony Award winners Nathan Lane as Gomez Addams and Bebe Neuwirth as his wife Morticia Addams. The all-new story follows daughter Wednesday, who matures into a young woman and falls in love with a young man from a respectable family.
