A flying duck in West Monroe, Louisiana might have a longer life than the "Duck Commander Musical" which 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.

The same Broadway company behind "Jersey Boys" renovated a 680-seat theater inside the Rio All-Suite Hotel & Casino for the show.

Broadway Producer Michael David told the Associated Press before the show debuted that he wanted the show to settle into Las Vegas for a time.

A statement from the production leaves open the possibility of traveling to other interested cities or a national tour.

The statement says "much has been learned from this limited engagement."
