Shane McAnally & Brandy Clark Release First Music Preview From ‘Shucked’
Shucked, Broadway’s new homegrown musical comedy, has released the music video for “Maybe Love” as the first preview of music from the upcoming show at the Nederlander Theatre in New York City.
Written and performed by the comedy’s composers Brandy Clark and Shane McAnally, the video also includes rehearsal footage of the Shucked cast ahead of the musical’s first preview on March 8, before its opening night on April 4.
The show is an audacious farm-to-fable musical about the one thing Americans everywhere can’t get enough of: corn. The new production demonstrates that sometimes tearing down a few walls, rather than growing them, is the only way to preserve our way of life.
“I remember the day that we wrote ‘Maybe Love’ and the way we stumbled into that hook ‘maybe love just needs a little love,'” says Clark. “I think what I love about this song is that it transcends the show for me and is a great reminder that we need to not only give each other more love, but also give love a little love. We can sometimes hate love for breaking our hearts, etc., but I think if we give love a little more love, it has a chance to grow and change our hearts.”
Shucked features an ensemble of Jimmy Brewer, Audrey Cardwell, Dwayne Clark, Rheaume Crenshaw, Jaygee Macapugay, Scott Stangland, Yasmeen Sulieman and Quinn VanAntwerp. The swings include Miki Abraham, Ken Clark, Traci Elaine Lee and Alan Wiggins. The choreography is done by Sarah O’Gleby, and the music supervision, music direction, orchestrations and arrangements are conducted by Tony Award nominee Jason Howland.
