STAGE TUBE: On This Day 10/31- THE SCOTTSBORO BOYS

October 31
11:34 AM 2012

Welcome to BWW's ON THIS DAY Series celebrating theatrical birthdays, openings and special events that took place on this day in theatre history!

Today in 2010, The Scottsboro Boys opened at the Lyceum Theatre, where it ran for 49 performances. The Scottsboro Boys is a musical with a book by David Thompson, music by John Kander and lyrics by Fred Ebb. Based on the Scottsboro Boys trial, the musical is one of the last collaborations between Kander and Ebb prior to the latter's death. The musical has the framework of a minstrel show, altered to "create a musical social critique." Despite closing on Broadway in December 2010, the show received twelve Tony Award nominations in May 2011, but failed to win any.

In celebration of this day, we bring you 'Commencing In Chattanooga' as performed at the 2011 Tony Awards. Click below to check it out!
