The Scottsboro Boys, the new musical by John Kander and the late Fred Ebb, opened Off-Broadway March 10 at the Vineyard Theatre.

Tony Award winner Susan Stroman (Contact) directs and choreographs the cast of thirteen that features John Cullum, Brandon Victor Dixon and Colman Domingo. The remaining cast consists of Sean Bradford, Josh Breckenridge, Derrick Cobey, Rodney Hicks, Kendrick Jones, Forrest McClendon, Julius Thomas III, Sharon Washington, Cody Ryan Wise and Christian Dante White.

According to press notes, The Scottsboro Boys "is a new musical that explores the infamous 1930s 'Scottsboro Case', in which a group of innocent African-American teenagers are falsely accused of a terrible crime ultimately provoking a national outrage that sparked the American Civil Rights movement."
