La Cage aux Folles is closing on Broadway, the producers announced in a statement.

“We're sorry to have to announce the final weeks of this exuberant production, which has brought great joy to audiences for the last year, as well as to everyone who has worked on the show, on stage and off," they said.

The revival will go dark on May 1 after 433 performances and 15 previews.

Kelsey Grammer starred until Mid-February. Grammer, 56, also wed his third wife, Kayte Walsh, 29, in a ceremony on the stage that month. He was replaced by Arrested Development's Jeffrey Tambor, who left a week later and was replaced by Christopher Sieber (Shrek the Musical).

After ending his run, Douglas Hodge was replaced by Harvey Fierstein, who wrote the musical's book.

The show won a Tony for best musical revival, Hodge and its director, Terry Johnson.

A national tour kicks off in Des Moines, Iowa this October.
