The Scottsboro Boys marks the final collaboration between the legendary Broadway songwriting team of composer John Kander and the late lyricist Fred Ebb (who worked together on Cabaret, Chicago and many more). With a book by David Thompson (And the World Goes 'Round, Steel Pier) and direction and choreography by Susan Stroman (The Producers, Contact, Crazy for You), the musical tells the true story of the nine Scottsboro Boys, young black men who were wrongly accused of rape in 1930s Alabama.

The Scottsboro Boys is currently running at the Lyceum Theatre, located at 149 east 45th Street. For more information, visit scottsboromusical.com or tdf.org.
