The new Kander and Ebb musical (with book by David Thompson), The Scottsboro Boys, begins previews today Off-Broadway in the Vineyard Theatre. The show deals with the famous “Scottsboro” case of the 1930s, in which a group of young African American teenagers were falsely accused of of raping two homeless white women on a freight train to Mississippi. Their attempts to prove their innocence and their treatment by the justice system, which provoked a national outrage, sparked the American Civil Rights movement.

The production has Susan Stroman at the helm, with John Cullum, Brandon Victor Dixon and Colman Domingo starring in the principle roles, and will open on 10 March, running through April 4th.

The official website is available here and has all the information you need for booking and of special events related to the show’s development.
