The new musical “Shucked” scheduled to arrive on Broadway, opened last fall to rave reviews in the show’s rather unorthodox out-of-town tryout at Salt Lake City’s Pioneer Theatre Company. Some might even call going to Utah “crazy,” but after watching, Jen Shah gets arrested outside of Heather’s salon on that episode of “The Real Housewives of Salt Lake City!!” And then Jen just got convicted!!! And now she might go to prison!!!!! That is truly crazy.

Shucked is written by Tony Award winner Robert Horn and score by the Nashville songwriting team of Brandy Clark and Shane McAnally, directed by three-time Tony Award winner Jack O’Brien has left audiences “struggling to catch their breaths between raucous laughs,” (The Gephardt Daily), with a score “filled with earworms you can’t wait to hear again,” (Salt Lake City Weekly) and a “perfectly cast company with sublime leads that brings this distinctive show to life” (Broadway World – Salt Lake City). Shucked will run on Broadway at the Nederlander Theatre (208 West 41 st Street) this spring, with preview performances beginning Wednesday, March 8, for an early April opening night.

Tickets are on sale now at

Additionally, Shucked is offering the return of Preview Pricing with orchestra seats starting as low as $69 for all preview performances through the final preview on Sunday, April 2.
