(Newser) – A flying duck in West Monroe, La., might have a longer life than the Duck Commander Musical that debuted in Las Vegas two weeks ago. A spokeswoman confirmed Friday that the 90-minute Broadway-style musical that told the story of the Louisiana family behind the Duck Dynasty reality show will end May 17. Broadway producer Michael David told the AP before the show debuted that he wanted the show—for which a 680-seat theater inside the Rio All-Suite Hotel & Casino was renovated—to settle into Las Vegas for a time. A statement from the production notes that "much has been learned from this limited engagement," but still leaves open the possibility of traveling to other interested cities or a national tour.
