The skill of the performers shone through, however, despite a lackluster script. They all have the chops to keep the production afloat, but it often feels as if they are collectively going through the motions to reach the musical’s inevitable conclusion. Douglas Sills, who plays Gomez Addams, manages to steal the show, rising above the so-so jokes with delivery alone, earning a good number of laughs from the crowd. Amusing, lovable, and sweetly sinister, Sills pulls off facial expressions and gestures that alone often get a big response. For instance, while struggling to keep a secret from his wife Morticia (Sara Gettelfinger), he spins around to find her standing just behind him. Nose-to-nose with her, he awkwardly tries to come off as calm, but falters. He stammers, mutters something about being startled by her beauty, then just dives in for a hug. Sills extends the moment into eternity, and the tension he creates is one of the funniest interactions in the play.
