Synopsis: "The Scottsboro Boys" explores the infamous "Scottsboro" case of the 1930's when a group of African American teenagers were unjustly accused of attacking two white women -- and the boys' attempts to prove their innocence. Kander and Ebb's The Scottsboro Boys is a stirring and provocative new work depicting one of the most memorable and notorious chapters in the history of race in America.

Broadway Reviews

NEW YORK TIMES REVIEW:

"Cynicism and compassion are not easily — perhaps not possibly — summoned at the same time. The challenge facing the new musical “The Scottsboro Boys,” which dares to present ugly American history as bawdy burlesque, is to keep audiences dancing nimbly between the two states of feeling, enticing us to cackle knowingly at the plague of racism at one moment, and arousing sorrow and sympathy for its victims the next. "

USA TODAY REVIEW:

"Musical theater has long been a forum for topics often avoided in polite conversation, from domestic violence to AIDS. The songwriting team of John Kander and the late Fred Ebb certainly didn't shy away from darker subject matter in their shows, among them Cabaret and Chicago."

ASSOCIATED PRESS REVIEW:

"John Kander and Fred Ebb have managed to turn some of the darkest themes into brilliant musicals: Nazis ("Cabaret"); Latin America repression ("Kiss of the Spider Woman"); and the dancing murderers of the Cook County jail ("Chicago")."

WALL STREET JOURNAL REVIEW:

"Rarely have I been so irked by a Broadway show as I was by "The Scottsboro Boys," which has moved uptown after a much-praised Off-Broadway run. This musical, in which the story of a horrific miscarriage of racial justice is retold in the form of a Mr.-Bones-and-Mr.-Jones minstrel show, is one of the best-staged productions ever to come to Broadway. "

HOLLYWOOD REPORTER REVIEW:

"With its high-energy ensemble and dynamic direction and choreography, this darkly provocative musical makes a fitting swan song for the duo behind "Cabaret" and "Chicago.""

NEW YORK DAILY NEWS REVIEW:

"It's exciting to see "The Scottsboro Boys" on Broadway boasting so many things a musical should have. That includes good songs, a provocative story (not from a movie), a rousing staging and a hugely talented cast."

NEW YORK MAGAZINE REVIEW:

"Sometimes, there’s nothing more dangerous than a little old-fashioned entertainment—and entertainment doesn’t come much more old-fashioned than the minstrel show, American theater’s most peculiar institution. In their final collaboration, The Scottsboro Boys, John Kander and the late Fred Ebb make a risky wager: using minstrelsy to tell a foundational parable of the civil-rights movement. The titular Boys were nine black youths falsely accused of rape in Depression-era Alabama—then falsely convicted, over and over again. "
