Shucked is headed to London! Earlier today, the U.K.’s pre-eminent producer and theater owner, Cameron Mackintosh, confirmed that Broadway’s new homegrown hit musical comedy (and current contender for nine Tony Awards), Shucked, will open in the West End in 2024.
In a prepared statement, Mackintosh said, “I’m delighted to confirm that London is going to get Shucked in one of my theatres next year! Shucked is that rarity: a completely original musical and the funniest show since The Book of Mormon, with a terrifically tuneful rollicking country and western score. It’s snuck up on Broadway and is proving to be the most talked about hit of the season. The corn at the heart of Shucked will have you husky with limitless laughter!”
Casting, exact theater, ticketing information, and other details will be announced in the coming months.
