When the grown-up Wednesday Addams falls head over heels for a normal boy, she invites his parents to the family mansion for a meet-and-greet gone gothic. Sit back and savor the horrific hospitality of Gomez, Morticia, Pugsley, Grandma, Lurch and everyone's favorite weirdo, Uncle Fester, as the special occasion brings out the best -- and worst -- in everyone involved. The award-winning team behind this magnificently macabre show includes authors Marshall Brickman and Rick Elice (Jersey Boys) and composer-lyricist Andrew Lippa (The Wild Party). Weylin Symes directs this ghoulish good time at the Stoneham Theatre.

The Forgetting Curve: New Drama Inspired by True Story

Known in the scientific community as Patient HM, a young man who underwent an experimental surgery in 1953 in the hopes of curing his epilepsy had his brain tragically altered, leaving him unable to form new memories. With this fascinating real-life case as its source of inspiration, The Forgetting Curve places a fictional neuroscientist named Dr. Laura Nebbens beneath the lens of a theatrical microscope. On the cusp of accepting an illustrious award, Dr. Nebbens -- who has studied the case of Patient HM for decades -- now finds herself struggling with thoughts of all that she's sacrificed in the name of her scientific legacy. With its non-linear storyline, this powerful world premiere questions the cost of the scientific contributions made by both doctor and patient.

Bent: Acclaimed Play About Persecuted Gays in Nazi Germany

In 1934 Berlin, two lovers are thrown on a train to Dachau as part of the Gestapo's plan to cleanse the city of "perverts." One denies his lover at the hands of the guards, but while at the camp, he learns that true dignity lies in acknowledging who he is. Bent is an award-winning WWII drama written by Martin Sherman that tracks the persecution of homosexuals in Nazi Germany. The play is historically significant because, before Bent's first staging in London in 1979, there was little awareness of Nazi treatment of homosexuals. With its potent statement, the play has helped increase historical research of and education about their abuse.

"Far From Heaven"
Far From Heaven: Oscar-Nominated Film Now a Lush, Romantic Musical

The picture-perfect facade of '50s-era family life is torn away in Far From Heaven, the stage adaptation of the Oscar-nominated romantic melodrama from director Todd Haynes (I'm Not There, Mildred Pierce). While managing a household that would show-up the Cleavers in its neatness and apparent civility, a Connecticut housewife discovers her husband's secret ... only to seek comfort in a forbidden relationship of her own. Tony Award-winning playwright Richard Greenberg (Take Me Out) and the creators of the musical Grey Gardens collaborated on this romantic musical that evokes Haynes' original inspiration: the lush, Technicolor brilliance of the films of Douglas Sirk. Now, for its Boston premiere, Scott Edmiston directs a smart and sophisticated production at the SpeakEasy Stage.

"Sweeney Todd"
Sweeney Todd: Stephen Sondheim's Masterful & Macabre Musical

"His skin was pale and his eye was odd" -- and that's only the beginning of what's unsettling about the barber/serial killer at the dark heart of Stephen Sondheim's Sweeney Todd. Set in the gloomy alleys of 19th-century London, this production from Lyric Stage Company of Boston "attends the tale" of Todd who, after being banished on false charges, returns to the city to exact his bloody revenge. A legendary smash in 1979, this black comedy won eight Tony Awards, while The New York Times gushed it contained "more artistic energy, creative personality and plain excitement" than a dozen average musicals. Recently adapted into a hit movie starring Johnny Depp, Sweeney Todd now comes to Boston in a vibrant production directed by Spiro Veloudos.
