The Scottsboro Boys is now playing at the Garrick Theatre in London following a sold-out season at the Young Vic.

From the writers of Cabaret and Chicago, Kander and Ebb’s award-winning and final musical won the Critics’ Circle Best Musical of 2013 and was nominated for 12 Tony Awards and 6 Olivier Awards.

The show is directed and choreographed by five-time TONY Award winner Susan Stroman (The Producers, Bullets Over Broadway).

The Scottsboro Boys tells the true story of nine young black men, aged between 12 and 19, travelling on a train through Scottsboro, Alabama in 1931 in search of a new life. By the end of their journey their lives had been changed forever. Wrongly accused of an unspeakable crime, their trial would divide a nation. But behind the screaming headlines was the devastating story of nine young men, desperate to prove to the world that they mattered.
