Brooke Cast As Morticia On Broadway

Even though the cast is losing someone extremely talented, this is fab news as that have found a great actress to fill-in!

Bebe Neuwirth is leaving The Addams Family on Broadway, only to be replaced by the one and only Brooke Shields!

Bebe's last night is June 26th, and Brooke will be picking right up where she left off on the 28th!

Shields is no newbie to Broadway either, picking up multiple roles in the past:

Roxie Hart in Chicago, Sally Bowles in Cabaret, Rizzo in Grease and Ruth in Wonderful Town.

We can't wait to see how she does! With those long legs, Morticia won't be a stretch at all!

Do U think she'll do well??

    Fantastic recast! Bebe was brilliant in this role (and certainly overlooked for a Tony nomination), but Brooke is also a great Broadway actress and will certainly bring a new edge to Morticia.

    WELL, Brooke is a name, BUT, SHE IS NOT BEBE! Bebe, just as Krammer's wife, was fit as a Morticia type. But, maybe Shields can show she has SOME RANGE in this part

    Hope she does great. Sounds like a good fit and she has proven she is a great Broadway actress. Go Brooke, break a leg.

    I absolutely love the Addams'………in fact, I've considered naming my first born girl, Wednesday.

    saw it with Bebe and Nathan — hard to picture anyone else in those roles — Bebe's voice alone was perfect for Morticia — am sure Brooke will be fine, but Bebe and Nathan were ideal
