Winner of the Lucille Lortel Award for Outstanding Musical, the Outer Critics Circle Award for Outstanding Off-Broadway Musical and nominated for nine Drama Desk Awards.

Closed 12 Dec 2010

The Scottsboro Boys is the thrilling final collaboration by musical theatre giants John Kander and Fred Ebb (Chicago, Cabaret). Based on the notorious "Scottsboro" case in the 1930s (in which 9 African-American men were unjustly accused of a terrible crime) this daring and wildly entertaining musical explores a fascinating chapter in American history with brilliant originality.

This critically-acclaimed production, directed by 5-time Tony Award winner Susan Stroman (The Producers) and featuring a book by David Thompson (who adapted the script for Chicago's record-breaking revival), comes to Broadway following a sold-out run at the Vineyard Theatre off-Broadway.
