Shuffle Along

Shuffle Along the Broadway Musical

Shuffle Along is a musical with music and lyrics by Noble Sissle and Eubie Blake, and a thin revue-style connecting plot about a mayoral race, written by Flournoy Miller and Aubrey Lyles.[1][2]

The piece premiered on Broadway in 1921, running for 504 performances – an unusually long run during that decade. It launched the careers of Josephine Baker, Adelaide Hall,[3] Florence Mills, Fredi Washington andPaul Robeson, and became such a hit that it caused “curtain time traffic jams” on West 63rd Street.[4] A Broadway adaptation, Shuffle Along, or, the Making of the Musical Sensation of 1921 and All That Followed, has a book by George C. Wolfe about the challenges of mounting the original production and its effect on Broadway and race relations. It began preview performances in March 2016.
