The Scottsboro Boys is based on the notorious "Scottsboro" case in the 1930s, where nine African American men were unjustly accused of attacking two white women on a train in Alabama. The young men were convicted by an all-white jury and spent years in jail, while the case was tried and retried. In the tradition of their classic musicals Cabaret and Chicago, Kander and Ebb explore this dark chapter of American history in a daringly inventive and startling entertainment.

Review - The Scottsboro Boys & Bloody Bloody Andrew Jackson
