This is a special Encore edition of Broadway Nation.
In the fall of 2021, I devoted two episodes to the remarkable book Footnotes by Caseen Gaines which was published to commemorate the 100th Anniversary of the landmark musical Shuffle Along. Now that book has just been rereleased in paperback and retitled, When Broadway Was Black — The Triumphant Story of The All Black Musical That Changed The World. So, this seemed like the perfect time to rerelease those episodes, and just like Cassen has done with his book, to include some new and updated content.
First you will hear a segment of a discussion I had just last week with Caseen about this rerelease of his book, and then the first half of our original conversation.
I’ll be releasing part two with even more new content as a bonus episode this coming Sunday.
