Signature’s tradition of celebrating Kander & Ebb continues with their final musical collaboration. In the vein of their iconic Chicago and Cabaret, the Tony Award®-winning masterminds deliver a breathtaking musical critique of a stunning true story of racism and injustice in the American South.
On March 25, 1931, nine young African-American teenagers were ripped off a train, falsely accused of a crime, hastily tried and sentenced to death in an outrageous disregard of due process. With a sound and style reflecting the period and exhilarating dance and song, The Scottsboro Boys transforms an event that gripped the nation into a compelling musical nominated for twelve Tony Awards®.
“A powerful and provocative musical. An absolute marvel.” – The Associated Press
The Scottsboro Boys contains mild adult situations.
