Exclusive: Shucked Tony Nominees on Embracing the Audience Response

Broadway Direct sat down with 2023 Tony Award nominees Kevin Cahoon, Robert Horn, and Jack O’Brien to discuss enjoying the audience response to the hilarious new musical Shucked every night on Broadway.

Stay tuned for more of Broadway Direct’s conversations with Tony nominees, and all things Tony Awards here.

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.
