Shuffle Along, Or The Making of the Musical Sensation of 1921 and All That Followed

Shuffle Along, Or The Making of the Musical Sensation of 1921 and All That Followed

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. With an infectious jazz score by Noble Sissle and Eubie Blake, the unprecedented sensation featured such incipient luminaries as Josephine Baker, Paul Robeson, Florence Mills and Adelaide Halls. Now, the 2016 Shuffle Along, created anew by a remarkable constellation of artists including Tony Award-winning director George C. Wolf, brings the original show back to glorious life, while simultaneously telling the unknown backstory of its creation. Shuffle Along opened at the Music Box Theater on April 28, 2016 and features memorable performances by an ensemble of theater greats including 6-time Tony Award winner Audra McDonald, Brian Stokes Mitchell, Tony Award-winner Billy Porter, Brandon Victor Dixon and Joshua Henry. Shuffle Along recently recieved ten Tony Award nominations including Best Musical.
