"The Addams Family," the Broadway musical about the famously macabre family, will close on Broadway Dec. 31, its producers announced Tuesday morning.

The show, which began at the Oriental Theatre in Chicago and was lead produced by Stuart Oken, will have played 725 performances. Currently, the show stars Brooke Shields as Morticia.

Although the show was not a favorite of New York critics, various international productions are now on the cards. A national tour will stop through Chicago this December.
