The Scottsboro Boys Reviews


The Scottsboro Boys

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. As she is waiting for a bus, a lady lifts a corner of a cake box she’s holding. As it brings back memories, the scene around her fades aways, and the minstrels arrive (“Minstrel March”). The Interlocutor, the host of the Minstrel Show, introduces the players in the troupe, then begins the story (“Hey, Hey, Hey, Hey!”).
