Brooke Shields to Join Addams Family
Brook Shields will be joining the cast of The Addams Family, replacing current star Bebe Neuwirth in the leading role of Morticia. "I am delighted to be joining The Addams Family this summer," Shields said in a statement. "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. I can’t wait to join Roger [Rees as Gomez] and the wonderful cast."
