So, Friday the 13th might be considered an unlucky day, but the good news is that it's the last one of 2015. Plus, it's kicking of a weekend and that's always a good thing! So what coordinates well with this unusual date, Addam's Family Musical showing at the Irving Arts Center, of course. So appropriate to attend, right? You'll love this musical, whether or not you you grew up watching this classic. I love that there's two great events showing this weekend at the Irving Arts Center! What a fun weekend they have planned.
