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. For more on the staging (which moves to San Francisco later this spring), click here.
