Highlights From The Scottsboro Boys at The Old Globe Theatre

The Old Globe Theatre brings The Scottsboro BoysJohn Kander and Fred Ebb's final collaboration — to the stage in San Diego. Based on a the true story of nine young men falsely accused of a violent crime in the Jim Crow South, the show unfolds in the form of an old-fashioned minstrel show, complete with a cakewalk, stock characters (the Interlocutor, Mr. Bones and Mr. Tambo) tap dancing and low humor. Directed and choreographed by Susan Stroman and with a book by David Thompson, the West Coast premiere of the Tony-nominated musical features Tony Award winner Ron Holgate (1776) as The Interlocutor, Clifton Duncan as Haywood Patterson, Jared Joseph as Mr. Bones and JC Montgomery as Mr. Tambo.
