Shucked, the Tony-nominated musical, is heading to London.
Based on the book written by Robert Horn, Shucked is a tale from the heart of the heartlands directed by three-time Tony Award winner Jack O’Brien and produced by Sandbox Entertainment’s Jason Owen alongside Mike Bosner. The show features music and lyrics by renowned songwriters Shane McAnally and Brandy Clark, and is also nominated for 12 Drama Desk Awards, seven Outer Critics Circle Awards and three Drama League Awards.
The musical will open in London’s West End theatre district in 2024, confirmed by U.K.’s preeminent producer and theater owner, Cameron Mackintosh. Casting, theater location, ticketing information and other details will be announced in the coming months.
“I’m delighted to confirm that London is going to get Shucked in one of one of my theatres next year! Shucked is a rarity: a completely original musical and the funniest show since The Book of Mormon, with a terrifically tuneful rollicking country and western score,” says Mackintosh.
“The truth about this kind of entertainment is it should make people feel good,” says Owen. “You can make people think or look at their values with a smile on their face just as easily as you can by being serious. But where the world is right now, people need to come together, to laugh and honestly recognize that Iowa, Nebraska, Ohio or even Arkansas where I’m from is as much a part of America as Wall Street or Hollywood – and Shucked is about bringing all these people together.”
