Savion Glover and George C. Wolfe Take History All the Way to the Tonys With Shuffle Along

Performance nominees Brandon Victor Dixon and Adrienne Warren talk Wolfe's outstanding direction.

"He was telling me about this project but not really telling me about it at the same time," said Adrienne Warren about her first conversation with director George C. Wolfe about Broadway's Shuffle Along, or, the Making of the Musical Sensation of 1921 and All That Followed. Wolfe crafted this show-about-a-show following a series of revelations about the historical musical Shuffle Along and then assembled an all-star team including Warren, Brandon Victor Dixon, and choreographer Savion Glover. Hear what the four new Tony nominees had to say the day after finding out about their show's many nods.
