Shuffle Along

Trivia & History

The show was conceived at a 1920 NAACP fundraiser in Philadelphia when vaudeville comics Flournoy E. Miller and Aubrey Lyles met songwriters Noble Sissle and Eubie Blake. They thought that Miller and Lyles's comic sketch "The Mayor of Dixie" could be expanded into a full-length musical and taken to Broadway.


"I'm Just Wild About Harry" was used as Harry S. Truman's campaign song during the 1948 presidential elections.
