Alex Newell, Taylor Trensch, Caroline Innerbichler & More to Lead SHUCKED World Premiere at Pioneer Theatre Company Pioneer Theatre Company has announced the full cast of Shucked, a new Broadway bound musical, which will have its world premiere at PTC from October 28 through November 12, 2022. The production is described as follows:

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. With an outrageously funny book by Tony Award®-winner Robert Horn, an irresistible score by Grammy Award®-winning songwriting team of Brandy Clark and Shane McAnally, and direction by three-time Tony Award®-winner Jack O'Brien, Shucked is about to turn Broadway on its ear and offer a kernel of hope for our divided nation.
