Theater tickets are currently available for the New York production
of The Scottsboro Boys. The play recounts the now well-known case involving nine black youths who were falsely accused of
raping two white women in the early 1930s. The production is directed and choreographed by Susan Stroman and offers a glimpse
into the racial injustices that were present during the 1930s.
The stage is set as the Alabama courtroom in which the nine boys were tried and the play demonstrates the re-occurring
acts of discrimination by the judicial system. Raw and rough, this play tells this somber story with a certain amount of cynicism.
It is not a production that will leave you singing and dancing in the aisles, but it is a well-crafted story that presents
the case as it happened many decades ago. Look for Broadway
and national tours tickets once they become available.
Sometimes it's hard to sit through plays that have a difficult subject matter. The Scottsboro Boys is likely to stir your
emotions with its tales of racial injustices and wrong-doings by the Alabama judicial system. It is also, however, an important
story to understand and learn from. Don't miss the show when it is featured in New York City.
