GRAND RAPIDS, MI — MLive theater critic Sue Merrell said it was “a snap” to enjoy “The Addams Family” musical brought to DeVos Performance Hall this week by Broadway Grand Rapids.

Below are mini-reviews by Mary Beth Quillin of GEM Theatrics, Larry Young of Creative Edge Productions, and Joe Dulin, former managing director of Circle Theatre. (…)
