Brooke Shields joins Broadway's 'Addams Family'

Posted on

Brooke Shields has signed on to fill Bebe Neuwirth’s heels as slinky matriarch Morticia in Broadway’s The Addams Family. “I’m delighted,” the actress said in a statement. “I found it to be wonderfully entertaining, funny, clever, and even touching, and I knew immediately that I wanted to be the next Morticia.” This will mark Shield’s fifth turn on the Broadway boards, after stints in GreaseChicago, Cabaret, and Wonderful Town (all as a replacement). She’ll step into the role on Tuesday, June 28.
