"Shuffle Along, or, the Making of the Musical Sensation of 1921 and All That Followed" is a musical based on the original book of the 1921 musical revue "Shuffle Along", by Flournoy Miller and Aubrey Lyles. The story focuses on the challenges of mounting the original production of Shuffle Along and its effect on Broadway and race relations.
Genèse: The show was given two workshops in the fall 2015; there was no out-of-town tryout. The production began previews on Broadway on March 15 and opened officially on April 28, 2016, at the Music Box Theatre, directed by Wolfe, with choreography by Savion Glover. The two worked together two decades earlier, with great success, on "Bring in 'da Noise, Bring in 'da Funk". Shuffle Along closed on Broadway on July 24, 2016, after 38 previews and 100 regular performances.
Résumé: In May 1921, Shuffle Along, a new musical conceived by Flournoy Miller and Aubrey Lyles with music and lyrics by Eubie Blake and Noble Sissle, became the unlikeliest of hits, significantly altering the face of the Broadway musical as well as that of New York City. In April 2016 - 95 years later - Shuffle Along, Or, The Making of the Musical Sensation of 1921 and All That Followed, will be a backstage musical telling the story of the creation of this transformative but now forgotten show.
