Book by Robert Horn. Music and lyrics by Brandy Clark and Shane McAnally. Directed by Jack O’Brien
The seeds have been planted. Now all we need is a little water, a little sunshine, and a whole lotta love.
Shucked is the new musical comedy from some of the hottest names on Broadway – and Nashville! Featuring a book by Tony Award®-winner Robert Horn (Tootsie), a score by Grammy Award®-winners Shane McAnally and Brandy Clark and directed by Tony Award®-winner by Jack O’Brien (Hairspray), this corn-fed, corn-bred American musical is sure to satisfy your appetite for great musical theater.
For over a hundred years, the good people of Corn Cob County have lived in relative obscurity, separated from the outside world by rows and rows of corn and bound together by their love of the land, each other, and good corn whisky. But when their tightly knit community is threatened with extinction, someone has to step up and step out to save their way of life.
Shucked is a hilarious new musical fable about an unlikely hero, an unscrupulous con man, and an unforgettable battle for the heart and soil of a small town. Wearing its heart proudly on its sleeve and planting its feet firmly on the ground, this outrageously funny new musical comedy proves there’s more than just a kernel of truth to the expression, “love grows in the most unexpected of places.”
