With music and lyrics by John Kander and Fred Ebb, and a book by David Thompson, the piece explores the infamous "Scottsboro" case of the 1930's when a group of African-American teenagers were unjustly accused of attacking two white women -- and the boys' attempts to prove their innocence. The panel will explore the history of the events and their meaning today.
The company of The Scottsboro Boys, to be directed by Susan Stroman, will feature two-time Tony winner John Cullum, Colman Domingo, Tony nominee Brandon Victor Dixon, Sean Bradford, Josh Breckenridge, Derrick Cobey, Rodney Hicks, Kendrick Jones, Forrest McClendon, Julius Thomas III, Sharon Washington, Cody Ryan Wise, and Christian White.For further information, visit www.vineyardtheatre.org.
