The Frank Sinatra jukebox musical "Come Fly Away" will close on Broadway.

The show will end its run at the Marquis Theatre on Sept. 5, producers announced Wednesday. The production was conceived, choreographed and directed by Twyla Tharp, who won a Drama Desk award for choreography.

"Come Fly Away," which opened on Broadway in March, will embark on a national tour in May 2011 in Chicago. Producers said more details on the tour will be announced later.

The show features a 19-piece band, 15 dancers and many of Sinatra's most popular songs.
