Top Touring Shows of 2017

The Addams Family UK tour

Douglas Mayo nominates the top touring shows from 2017 and congratulates the teams of people who make these amazing shows travel the length and breadth of the UK each week. The Addams Family One of the best new touring productions of 2017, Andrew Lippa’s The Addams Family was an absolute joy. Stunning performances backed up by a stunning production.
