Expect to see the creepy and kooky side of beautiful Brooke Shields when she joins the cast of Broadway's "The Addams Family" this summer.
According to Playbill, Shields has just signed on to play Morticia Addams in the popular musical based on the 1960s TV series.
"I am delighted to be joining 'The Addams Family' this summer," says Shields, who will take over for actress Bebe Neuwirth. "When the producers asked me to come see the show a few months ago, I found it to be wonderfully entertaining, funny, clever and even touching, and I knew immediately that I wanted to be the next Morticia, following the amazing Bebe Neuwirth."
Neuwirth will play her last show on June 26, and Shields—whose previous Broadway credits include "Grease," "Chicago," "Cabaret," "Wonderful Town" and "Girls Talk"—will take the stage of the Lunt-Fontanne Theatre with Gomez Addams (Roger Rees) beginning June 28.
"I can’t wait to join Roger and the wonderful cast," she says.
Does Shields have what it takes to play Morticia?

Hey head diva are u a pale version of the fat striper on jerry tv
Brooke is the better choice because cher in my opnion is not curvy enough @ head diva swimming is a good exercise and its easy u should float
Brooke is the better choice because cher in my opnion is not curvy enough
Wonderful remark! You are GREAT !
@diva if u are a woman are u jealous brooke and cher look better than u will ever look in their 50s/60s than u will ever look. Do u cry when u look down at that oversized beer gut and at your a cup and wish thats not what you see and the long crack you call an a** so u blog they both are dried up but u cant get used up what a shame
But Brooke has a big face like myself. I don't have a double chin, i have 3!!
Bebe Neuwirth and Roger Rees? They just need one more Cheers alum to join the cast for the trifecta. How about George Wendt as Uncle Fester?
Brooke? Well maybe but can she dance like Morticia Addams and pummel Gomez in his manLove hole like he needs?
I wouldnt mind running a logjam up Bebe Neuwirths chocolate dispenser.
I find it very odd, still, that Brooke Shields can sing and dance. It's even stranger that she is actually GOOD.
brooke would be greatttttttttt. what about will's sith kids they can't carry the whole family. they think everything
shoud be handed to them. their dad had to work.
Saw Brooke in Cabaret and Chicago. The girl can really sing and dance.
Adding Brooke to the cast just might save the show from closing after BeBe leaves.
I'm ok w/Brooke
Hey you above! So what if I watch tv all day/night? What else is there for me to do? Would you like to come over and keep me company, huh? Seriously mind your own business!
Didn't I just read in a diff blog that you need to get a life or something? You just sit around watching reality tv & post dumb a_ _ comments? Yup, you need a life, from your own mouth.
Who cares what you think. They are both dried up old goats!
Which is just like Morticia,you are spot on !! I think cher would be better than brooke shields, never cared much for her.
Besides, after all the botox, Cher's face never moves.
Which is unlike Morticia?
Brooke is a better choice for morticia than cher brooke favors the original morticia t*ts shape everything
Yes, I wouldn't have thought of her in the role, but now that I picture it, yes! She's got the figure and face to play the original goth goddess. I saw the play last year and LOVED it! Bebe and Nathan were phenomenal in the roles of Morticia and Gomez.
well...- Cher would also make a great choice as well.
I think Cher would be a better fit.
Is she gonna be nekked ?
really nekked huh. do you mean naked???
