"A masterwork, both daring and highly entertaining"
New York Post

NOMINATED FOR 10 TONY AWARDS INCLUDING BEST MUSICAL

In this, their final collaboration, legendary songwriting team John Kander and Fred Ebb (Cabaret, Chicago) bring to light one of the most infamous events in American history: the shocking true story of nine African American boys jailed in Alabama in 1931 for a crime they did not commit. Featuring a mix of gospel, jazz and vaudeville, this audacious musical uses the construct of a minstrel show to tell the harrowing true story that provoked a national outrage and helped launch the American civil rights movement.

Approximate running time: 1 hour and 45 minutes with no intermission.
