First Lady Michelle Obama, her daughters and mother enjoyed another Broadway show — the second in two days. On March 22, they took in the 8 PM preview of the musical The Addams Family at the Lunt-Fontanne, a spokesman for the show confirmed to Playbill.com.

Mrs. Obama, daughters Malia and Sasha, and Mrs. Obama's mother, Marian Robinson, were not scheduled to meet the cast of the new musical about a creepy, gothic family. The show, with songs by Andrew Lippa, is drawn from the characters created by illustrator Charles Addams.

The First Family is bringing a bright spotlight to Broadway this week. On March 21, the Obamas (minus President Barack Obama) attended the matinee of Memphis at the Shubert Theatre.
