The Scottsboro Boys is a daring new musical based on the notorious "Scottsboro" case in which nine young African American men were unjustly accused of rape in 1930s Alabama. Their lives would eventually spark the Civil Rights Movement. With arresting originality, innovative staging and a breathtaking score, The Scottsboro Boys received 12 Tony Award nominations and was hailed by Entertainment Weekly as "the best new musical of the year."
