On the news of her departure, Innerbichler said, “Being on stage with this remarkable company of actors has been one of the great joys of my professional life. I have some exciting things cooking that I can’t share just yet, but all will be revealed in good time. Even though I’ll be leaving Shucked, I will still be cheering everyone on as they continue to make audiences feel the love of Cobb County.”

McCalla added, “I’m so excited that I will be ‘getting Shucked’ eight times a week on stage at the Nederlander Theatre! Wait…. I just got that… Oh, no… I have to call my family back and explain.”

With a “superb book” (New York Post) by Tony Award winner Robert Horn, a score filled with “earworm songs” (The Daily Beast) by Tony Award nominees and Nashville music superstars Brandy Clark and Shane McAnally, and directed with “an infectious spirit of glee and warmth” (Variety) by three-time Tony Award winner Jack O’Brien also stars the award-winning cast that includes Outer Critics Circle Award nominee John Behlmann, Tony Award and Drama Desk Award nominee Kevin Cahoon, Drama Desk Award nominee Andrew Durand, Tony Award nominee Grey Henson, Theatre World Award winner Ashley D. Kelley, and Tony Award winner, Drama Desk Award winner, Outer Critics Circle Award winner, and Drama League Award nominee Alex Newell.

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 turning Broadway on its ear and is offering a kernel of hope for our divided nation.
