Recently Kevin Cahoon joined iHeartRadio Broadway to chat about working on Shucked which is currently playing at the Nederlander Theatre. Kevin, who is one of the only cast members to work on Shucked since inception, chats about what it's like having Tony Award winner Robert Horn write jokes just for you and trying to keep a straight face while working with Andrew Durand.
