Bebe Neuwirth, cast as Morticia in the pre-Broadway run of the Addams Family at the Oriental Theatre, missed five performances last weekend. A spokesperson said she was out with tendinitis and is expected back tomorrow. Too much tango, perhaps, but she vanished just days after producers Stuart Oken and Roy Furman announced that director Jerry Zaks has been hired to revamp the show before it begins New York previews March 8.
