Very much deserved. It was so much more powerful than so much else that is still running. So glad I was able to see it.

I pray the show will be able to get a full number at the awards.

And I'll be the one to ask - Does this mean chances of it coming back might actually happen??

Anyone else think they might try and reopen the show now that it received the second greatest amount of nominations? I mean, they did get nominated, didn't they?

Congratulations to the show, though I feel many of those nominations are very much so underserved.

love it, only issue of it reopening is that joshua henry is already set to join a.c.t's porgy and bess which i guess he could drop out of since its a regional production.

Re: the issue of Joshua Henry being in Porgy and Bess. The return of "The Scottsboro Boys" was planned as a limited engagement through early summer, so it would be possible to bring it back and for him to still be available for Porgy and Bess which doesn't go up until August, I believe.

C'mon, Weisslers, let's bring this back to the Booth!

It will probably come back, and it will probably flop a second time.

I thought the show was great and I'm happy it got a best musical nomination, but...best set design? For some chairs?

And I don't even remember who Forrest McClendon played.

So thrilled that three of its performers were recognised. Really hope it makes a return of some sort.

Adam, why does Best Set Design have to go to over-designed shows where it's just flashy and doesn't necessarily contribute to the story telling. I thought the set design of Scottsboro was brilliant in its simplicity and I was hoping that the Tony committee would recognize that.

ETA: to Adam, Forrest McClendon played Tambo to Colman's Bones

If Scottsboro was still running, it would be a very interesting race between Mormon/Scottsboro. I can't see anything but Mormon winning now though.

It would be interesting if Scottsboro re-opened at the Booth theatre, gained massive hype and stole Mormon's thunder before the Tony Awards. This is such a 'pipe dream' though.

If they were going to re-open it, now is the time. If they don't it will be known that any chance of it re-opening was just a big bluff in anycase.
