“Just don’t expect intellectual nourishment; forgive me, I’m breaking my promise, but it’s mostly empty calories you’ll find in this sweet, down-market cornucopia.”

Time Out New York

“The jokes pop like corn on a cast-iron stove in the musical ’Shucked’...Before you know it, you’re gorged to satisfaction on a big, tasty bag of Broadway puff.”

New York Magazine / Vulture

“It helps that ‘Shucked’s’ corn is some triple-A product: The direction’s tight, there’s barely any dead air onstage, and the musical speeds toward its happy conclusion before you have room to question it...To that end, ‘Shucked’ goes in one end and out the other wholly itself. Just like corn.”

“It's too soon to tell if ‘Shucked’ has staying power as a Broadway musical, but its refreshing embrace of diversity and unapologetically corny sincerity can definitely put a smile on your face.”

"...'Shucked' is described at the top of the show as a fable. It is more a fantasy, really, but the suggestion is that perhaps we shouldn’t take this romantic comedy among the corn ears seriously. "

“...there’s much to enjoy—even as the fun wears thin as corn silk...Shorn from its earwormy songs and bubbly ensemble, ‘Shucked’ tends to fade. Unlike the corn you ate the night before, it doesn’t stick around to remind you.”

“When all’s said and done, ’Shucked’ is exactly as much fun as you’ll let it be. Go with it, and savor the corn.”
