New Broadway Musical The Scottsboro Boys To Open This Sunday

Now I'll admit. I really don't know that much about The Scottsboro Boys other that it got great reviews during it's Off-Broadway run earlier this year. That is why it's coming to Broadway. The show which first premiered at the Vineyard Theatre on February 2010 tells the story of nine African-American teenagers who were accused of raping two white women on a freight train to Memphis, Tennessee. Doesn't exactly scream Broadway musical now does it? At least it's not a cartoon right? Now don't get me wrong. I have heard nothing but good things about this show and being a composer myself I am looking forward to seeing it. Not only that but it is one of the final collaborations between the Tony winning team of Kander and Ebb prior to Mr. Ebbs passing in 2004. That alone should be reason enough to see it. Until next time theatre fans.
