Shuffle Along on Broadway - Tickets - Show Summary - Photos
Show Summary - Shuffle Along Shuffle Along is a new revamping of a classic African American musical revue. The show first premiered on Broadway in 1921, following touring productions around New Jersey and Pennsylvania. At the time, it was the first all African-American musical production in more than a decade, and was credited with launching the Harlem Renaissance as well as the careers of notable performers such as Josephine Baker, Paul Robeson, and Adelaide Hall. That version of the show was revived on Broadway in 1933, and then again in 1952. Now, a new libretto has been written by George C. Wolfe (director of Lucky Guy, The Normal Heart, A Free Man of Color), who will also direct the production.
In this version, it is actually entitled Shuffle Along, Or, The Making of the Musical Sensation of 1921 and All That Followed. Therefore, it is more than just the original classic story; it is also the meta-story dealing with the impact that this show has had on American culture. The show stars Audra McDonald as Lottie Gee. McDonald holds the singular distinction of having earned Tony Awards is all four acting categories available to an actress, with credits including Lady Day at Emerson’s Bar & Grill, The Gershwins’ Porgy & Bess, and 110 in the Shade.
