Description

Scottsboro Boys

“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 50 minutes with no intermission.
