The Scottsboro Boys


  • Playhouse on Park 244 Park Road West Hartford, CT, 06119 United States (map)

by John Kander, Fred Ebb & David Thompson
 

The thrilling, final collaboration by musical theatre greats, John Kander and Fred Ebb (CHICAGO, CABARET), The Scottsboro Boys has been hailed as one of the most visionary pieces ever to grace the Broadway stage. Nominated for a staggering twelve Tony Awards, THE SCOTTSBORO BOYS will have you tapping your toes and hollering for justice as the tables are turned on one of the most infamous events in American history: nine African-American men accused of a crime they did not commit. With its brilliant stew of performance styles and piercing new songs, it is truly a triumph of the American Musical Theatre.

 

“Genuinely radical musical, full of stinging indignation and plaintive power.” The Guardian

 

“A sophisticated knockout, a musical for those who like their razzle-dazzle with a radical, unsentimental edge.” LA
