Tony Nominee Grey Henson to Star in Shucked, Full Broadway Cast Announced

Following a Tony Award-nominated turn in Mean Girls, Grey Henson is returning to Broadway in the new musical Shucked. He joins the previously announced Ashley D. Kelley as one of the Storytellers, as well as a cast that includes John Behlmann, Kevin Cahoon, Andrew Durand, Caroline Innerbichler, and Alex Newell.

The ensemble of Shucked will feature 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.

Shucked, the new original musical comedy, will play Broadway’s Nederlander Theatre with preview performances beginning Wednesday, March 8, 2023, ahead of an opening night Tuesday, April 4, 2023.

The new musical features a book by Tony Award winner Robert Horn and a score by the Nashville songwriting team of Brandy Clark and Shane McAnally, who collectively have earned three Grammy Awards and 18 Grammy nominations. The production is directed by three-time Tony Award winner Jack O’Brien with choreography by Sarah O’Gleby, and music supervision, orchestrations, and arrangements by Tony Award nominee Jason Howland.

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.
