The Scottsboro Boys (NY, 2010, 49 performances) music by John Kander, lyrics by Fred Ebb and Kander, book by David Thompson, directed and choreographed by Susan Stroman

One of the last scores written by Kander & Ebb (who died in 2004), The Scottsboro Boys tells the true story of a group of nine African-Americans who were wrongly accused of a crime in 1931. The young men were faced with the violent racism of the time, suffering through multiple trials and guilty verdicts, ruining all of their lives - the widely publicised case is now seen as a terrible miscarriage of justice. The Scottsboro Boys is presented as a show-within-a-show as each scene is introduced by minstrel-style performers, serving as a social critique, “revealing the evils of the system”. The dark subject matter is dealt with carefully through a beautiful score and often ironic, beautiful lyrics, delicately manoeuvring a non-traditional musical structure and an unusual topic with grace. The performances from the all-Black cast are as breathtakingly heartbreaking, delicate, and often funny, as the show’s clever score and choreography. However, despite what would seem a ground-breaking work of musical theatre, and what some critics have dubbed “a masterwork”, the show failed to attract audiences and closed after a 49-show run. The show received twelve Tony Award nominations in 2011, but failed to win any - this broke the record of the most Tony nominations without a win (ironically beating the record previously held by Kander & Ebb’s Steel Pier, 1997, and Kander & Ebb’s Chicago, 1975, which both had eleven nominations without a single win). The show is currently on tour.

"Come and watch them sing and dance
Come and see their tears and joy
Come, this is your final chance 
To meet the Scottsboro boys”

wow The Scottsboro Boys was fantastic! Such an important musical in so many different ways, and the direction was wonderful, I am so making a return visit!

i hate cheese and onion crisps but thats all i have in the house and sometimes when you’re desperate you learn to adapt
