In the past decade, Brooke Shields has won rave reviews and has established herself as an acclaimed Broadway musical leading lady with her performances as Ruth in Wonderful Town, Roxie Hart in Chicago and Sally Bowles in Cabaret. Her Broadway debut came in 1994 as Rizzo in Grease, for which she won a Theatre World Award.

This past summer she starred with Raul Esparza in Alan Menken's Leap of Faith at the Ahmanson Theatre in Los Angeles. She recently starred in the new play Girls Talk at the Lee Strasberg Theater, also in L.A.

Shields has received numerous awards and accolades for her extensive repertoire of talents. She was nominated twice for a Golden Globe Award for Best Actress in a Television Series - Musical or Comedy, and was also nominated for The American Comedy Awards' Funniest Female Performer in a Television Series Leading Role for her hit comedy show, "Suddenly Susan." She is the recipient of five People's Choice Awards.

She was recently seen in her own show "In My Life" at Feinstein's at the Loews Regency, sharing stories and songs from her incredible journey in show business.

Now in its second year on Broadway at the Lunt-Fontanne Theatre 205 West 46th Street, THE ADDAMS FAMILY has grossed more than $65 million since its opening in April, 2010.

A national tour of THE ADDAMS FAMILY will begin in September of this year at the Mahalia Jackson Theatre for the Performing Arts in New Orleans.
