Shuffle Along News & Features

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.

*Please note: Audra McDonald will not appear in performances from June 20 through September 11, 2016. She will return on September 13.

 

Please note: Audra McDonald does not perform at matinees.

This show is closed.

Performances ended on Jul. 24, 2016.
