The Vineyard Theatre's production of the musical The Scottsboro Boys, set to open on March 10, has announced an extension through April 18.

Susan Stroman directs and choreographs the production, which features 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 cast features 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.
