The bold and wildly entertaining "The Scottsboro Boys" explores a shocking and pivotal chapter in American history with arresting originality, innovative staging and piercing new songs. The show is based on the infamous "Scottsboro" case in the 1930s, and tells the story of the nine unjustly accused African American men whose lives would eventually spark the Civil Rights Movement. "The Scottsboro Boys" received 12 Tony Award nominations in 2011, including Best Musical.
