Summary

“FEARLESSLY INVENTIVE!
The musical left me feeling elevated as only original works of art can.”

—Critic's Choice —Charles McNulty, Los Angeles Times

“The musical manages to be both funny and deeply unsettling, typically in the same moment. Susan Stroman stages the West Coast premiere at the Globe with a versatile and committed 13-member cast that's tuned into the piece's appetite for the audacious.”
—Critic's Choice —James Hebert, U-T San Diego

"BRILLIANT!
This is must-see theater–provocative, stirring, dispiriting, amazing.
Do not miss it!”

—-Pat Launer, KSDS Jazz 88.3

From the creators of Chicago, Cabaret and Kiss of the Spider Woman comes the critically acclaimed THE SCOTTSBORO BOYS! This daring and wildly entertaining new musical, directed by five-time Tony Award winner Susan Stroman, explores a pivotal moment in American history with arresting originality, innovative staging and a breathtaking score. Based on the notorious “Scottsboro” case of the 1930s, this inspiring and shocking story tells of the nine unjustly accused African American men whose lives would eventually spark the Civil Rights Movement. Possibly the most important musical Broadway has seen in recent memory. A co-production with American Conservatory Theater.
