NEW YORK (AP) -- Bye, bye Bebe. Hello there, Brooke.
Producers of "The Addams Family" on Broadway said Thursday that Bebe Neuwirth will give her final performance as Morticia on June 26 and her role will be taken over by Brooke Shields.
Based on the cartoons that appeared for years in The New Yorker, the musical is in its second year at the Lunt-Fontanne Theatre. The role of Gomez has already been handed over by Nathan Lane to Roger Rees.
Shields has extensive Broadway credits, including playing Ruth in "Wonderful Town," Roxie Hart in "Chicago" and Sally Bowles in "Cabaret."
