Shuffle Along

Audiences = 5.0

Running since March 2016
George C. Wolfe revisits a classic 1921 musical with a new work exploring the backstage story about the making of one of the first all-black Broadway musical hits.

From the producers: In May 1921, the new musical "Shuffle Along" became the unlikeliest of hits, significantly altering the face of the Broadway musical, as well as that of New York City. By the time Shuffle Along stumbled into town after a back-breaking pre-Broadway tour, it was deeply in debt and set to open at a remote Broadway house on West 63rd Street. But with an infectious jazz score and exuberant dancing, Shuffle Along ignited not just Broadway, but all of New York City. Because of "Shuffle Along," Uptown and Downtown met - and became one.

The 2016 "Shuffle Along," created anew by a remarkable constellation of artists, brings the original show back to glorious life, while simultaneously telling the heretofore unknown backstage saga of its creation - and how it changed the world it left behind.

"Shuffle Along" stars record-breaking six-time Tony Award winner Audra McDonald, along with fellow Tony winners Brian Stokes Mitchell and Billy Porter, plus Tony nominees Brandon Victor Dixon and Joshua Henry.

McDonald, who won the 2014 Tony Award for her performance in "Lady Day at Emerson's Bar & Grill," has also won Tonys for "Carousel," "Master Class," "Ragtime," "A Raisin in the Sun" and "Porgy and Bess."

Mitchell won a Tony Award for his performance in "Kiss Me, Kate," as well as three nominations for "Ragtime," "King Hedley II" and "Man of La Mancha." Porter's Broadway credits include "Smokey Joe's Cafe," "Grease," "Five Guys Named Moe," "Miss Saigon" and his Tony winnning role in "Kinky Boots."
