THE SCOTTSBORO BOYS

April 23 – May 8, 2022
The Gateway Theatre
Music by John Kander

Lyrics by Fred Ebb
Book by David Thompson

Director, Brandon Jackson
Music Director, Daniel Alley

Dramatically thrilling and emotionally devastating, The Scottsboro Boys confronts America’s brutal history dead on.

From the great minds of Kander and Ebb, composers of Chicago and Cabaret, comes another powerful, challenging theatrical experience. Examining the infamous, true-life horror of the 1931 Alabama rape trial of nine innocent Black teenagers, the creators hold a mirror to modern society and to the world of entertainment by turning the tables and presenting the story through the lens of Minstrelsy. A visceral, unforgettable musical drama, as entertaining as it is damning, this is a show not to be missed.
