Kander and Ebb Collaboration Opens
The new musical by John Kander and Fred Ebb, directed by Susan Stroman opened last night at the Lyceum Theater. It explores the past and present injustices in American culture and justice system by telling the story of 9 black boys wrongfully accused of rape in Scottsboro, AL in 1931. Set to the background of the racially charged mistrel show, it is a musical that is sure to horrify, inspire, and remind audiences of how much there is yet to do.
