Here’s what I had to say about it back in the fall:
Shuffle Along for a Long Jazzy Ride
by Ross
“The drive of Act One left Act Two with little to no destination in mind…A lot of time is wasted on material that just doesn’t have the drive or the passion that vibrated off the stage during Act One…Throughout the whole show, I have never seen such powerful tap dancing in my life…but at the three hour mark, we are all a bit ready to step outside and rejoin the current Broadway’s sparkling lights and excitement.”Full Review
