Following successful runs Off-Broadway and at the Guthrie Theatre, The Scottsboro Boys begins performances at Broadway's Lyceum Theatre Oct. 7.


According to press notes, the show "is the thrilling new musical by John Kander and Fred Ebb (Chicago, Cabaret). Based on the notorious 'Scottsboro' case in the 1930s — in which nine 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."

Director Susan Stroman's cast includes Sean Bradford, Josh Breckenridge, Derrick Cobey, John Cullum, Colman Domingo, Joshua Henry, Rodney Hicks, Kendrick Jones, Forrest McClendon, Julius Thomas III, Sharon Washington and Christian Dante White.
