Tony Award winners Audra McDonald, Brian Stokes Mitchell, and Billy Porter headline this musical about the making of the 1921 Broadway hit 'Shuffle Along.' More…
In May 1921, the new musical 'Shuffle Along' became the unlikeliest of hits. It stumbled into town after a back-breaking pre-Broadway tour, deeply in debt, and set to open at a remote theater house on West 63rd. Its failure was almost a foregone conclusion. But with an infectious jazz score and exuberant dancing, 'Shuffle Along' ignited not just Broadway but all of New York City. Uptown and Downtown met and became one. This star-studded production combines the 1921 musical 'Shuffle Along' with the backstory of the people who brought it to life. 'Bring in 'Da Noise, Bring in ‘Da Funk' collaborators George C. Wolfe and Savion Glover reunite to direct and choreograph.
See it if Wow! One of the best shows I have ever seen. The singing, dancing, acting, staging all perfection!
