“I’M ALL EARS FOR THIS NEW TUNER BY ROBERT HORN AND NASHVILLE SONGWRITERS BRANDY CLARK AND SHANE MCANALLY. IT’S THE INCREASINGLY RARE BROADWAY MUSICAL THAT ISN’T ADAPTED FROM ANYTHING ELSE, WHICH DOES RAISE THE EXCITEMENT FACTOR.”
– TIME OUT NEW YORK (FEBRUARY 22, 2023)
New York, NY (February 23, 2023) – Today, Shucked, Broadway’s homegrown new musical comedy, released the music video for “Maybe Love,” the first song from the show. Written and performed by the show’s composers Brandy Clark and Shane McAnally, who collectively have earned three Grammy Awards® and 18 Grammy nominations, includes rehearsal footage of the Broadway cast ahead of the show’s first preview on Wednesday, March 8 at the Nederlander Theatre (208 West 41st Street) for a Tuesday, April 4 opening night.
Brandy Clark said, “I remember the day that we wrote ‘Maybe Love’ and the way we stumbled into that hook ‘maybe love just needs a little love.’ 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, with book by Tony Award winner Robert Horn, music and lyrics by Clark and McAnally, and direction by three-time Tony Award® winner Jack O’Brien, stars (in alphabetical order) John Behlmann, Kevin Cahoon, Andrew Durand, Tony Award nominee Grey Henson, Caroline Innerbichler, Ashley D. Kelley, and Alex Newell.
The ensemble of Shucked features Jimmy Brewer, Audrey Cardwell, Dwayne Clark, Rheaume Crenshaw, Jaygee Macapugay, Scott Stangland, Yasmeen Sulieman, and Quinn VanAntwerp. The swings are Miki Abraham, Ken Clark, Traci Elaine Lee, and Alan Wiggins.

What do you get when you pair a semi-neurotic, New York comedy writer with two music superstars from Nashville? A hilarious and audacious farm-to-fable musical about the one thing Americans everywhere can’t get enough of: corn. Shucked is the new musical comedy that proves sometimes tearing down a few walls, rather than growing them, is the only way to preserve our way of life. Shucked is about to turn Broadway on its ear and offer a kernel of hope for our divided nation.
With choreography by Sarah O’Gleby, and music supervision, music direction, orchestrations, and arrangements by Tony Award nominee Jason Howland, the design team for Shucked includes Tony Award winner Scott Pask (scenic design), Drama Desk Award nominee Tilly Grimes (costume design), Tony Award nominee Japhy Weideman (lighting design), Tony Award winner John Shivers (sound design), Academy Award winner and Emmy Award winner Mia Neal (hair and wig design), and Stephen Kopel, C12 Casting (casting director).
