The new John Kander-Fred Ebb-David Thompson musical, helmed by Susan Stroman, is preparing for its upcoming world premiere at the Vineyard Theatre.
Stroman will direct and choreograph the musical featuring music and lyrics by John Kander and the late Fred Ebb and a book by David Thompson. The run will begin previews Feb. 12 and open March 10.
The Scottsboro Boys, according to an announcement, "explores the famous 'Scottsboro' case of the 1930s — in which a group of young African American teenagers were unjustly accused of attacking two women — and the boys' attempts to prove their innocence." Billed as a "new musical," the work was one of the final collaborations from the famed songwriting team before Ebb's death.
