About Shucked on Broadway

Get ready to have a shuck-ton of fun at Shucked on Broadway! See the new musical that's cropped up at the Nederlander Theatre, starring Best Featured Actor Tony winner Alex Newell. Shucked tickets are on sale now. Get Shucked Broadway tickets on TodayTix.

Shucked on Broadway is, above all, corny. Literally. Welcome to Cob County, where corn sustains everyone’s lives — until the crop starts dying, and it's up to the farmgirl Maizy to find someone to help. This musical comedy’s creative team is the cream of the crop, with five-time Tony-winning director Jack O’Brien, Tony-winning bookwriter Robert Horn, and Grammy-winning country songwriters Brandy Clark and Shane McAnally.

Expect a cross "between The Book of Mormon and Oklahoma!," according to Horn, with echoes of other classic musicals planted inside a homegrown original story. Shucked is the juiciest, most entertaining thing to come from Salt Lake City since The Real Housewives.

A fresh plot, catchy songs that will delight your ears, and a golden cast and creative team? That’s a recipe for Broadway success — Shucked earned nine Tony nominations, including Best Musical, Best Book of a Musical, and Best Original Score.

Refreshing, Fluffy, Delightful

See it if you simply want to have a fun time. Lots of funny puns and one liners. Perfect cast filled with personality. Nice country tinged songs.

Don’t see it if you are critical of a musical that just wants to entertain. Not thought provoking or with a deep message, just a funny, clever show.

Entertaining, Funny, Great acting, Great staging, Great singing

See it if you like light, edgy humor with lots of double entendres along with great singing voices in a new musical comedy that feels good.

Don’t see it if you are looking for a serious show or a new plot - there is a lot of silliness here if that is not your thing.

More information about Shucked on Broadway

A tall thicket of corn surrounds the entire town of Cob County in the Shucked musical, spelling trouble when it starts to wilt. Maizy puts her wedding on hold to save the day, and the townspeople perk up their ears when she returns from Tampa, Florida with Gordy, a "corn doctor" (read: podiatrist) who claims he can help. And while there are kernels of truth to his story, all isn't as it seems.

Shucked premiered in 2022 at Pioneer Theatre Company in Salt Lake City, Utah, to positive reviews — the show “nearly [blew] the roof off the theater,” according to the Utah Arts Review. That's no surprise, considering its celebrated creative team. Robert Horn, a 2019 Tony winner for Tootsie, wrote the book for Shucked on Broadway, and Brandy Clark and Shane McAnally wrote the “all-killer, no-filler” (Salt Lake City Weekly) songs. They're making their Broadway debuts and are known in the country music scene for writing hits for Kelly Clarkson, Kacey Musgraves, Reba McEntire, Sheryl Crow, and more.

Director Jack O'Brien pops back onto Broadway for the first time since 2019. Before Shucked in New York, he directed other musical comedies like Hairspray (which won him a Tony Award), Catch Me If You Can, and Dirty Rotten Scoundrels.

What to watch for

  • Echoes of The Music Man appear in Shucked. One of the main characters is a con man who intends to swindle Cob County — we won't spoil who! (In The Music Man, con man Harold Hill swindles a small town by posing as a music teacher.)
  • Shucked was initially called Moonshine: That Hee Haw Musical and was based on the long-running variety TV show Hee Haw. The creative team has reworked the musical entirely since Moonshine’s one-off run in Texas, and the Broadway version is no longer associated with Hee Haw.
  • A couple of the characters’ names from the original version remain similar, though — Misty became Maizy, and characters named Gordy and Lulu remain.
  • Shucked marks Horn's second collaboration with actor John Behlmann, who also starred in Tootsie and now plays the doctor Gordy.
