“Our story begins one fine spring morning – March the twenty-fifth. Nineteen-hundred and thirty-one – on a boxcar heading for Memphis.
It’s the dawn of the Depression. And nine young boys looking for work, nine complete strangers, are about to begin the ride of their lives …”

The Lyceum Theatre box office (149 West 45th Street) opens on Thursday, September 2 for the exhilarating new Kander & Ebb musical, THE SCOTTSBORO BOYS. To mark the occasion, the producers are pleased to announce a special ticket offer: for one day only, tickets priced at $19.31 (for the year in which the musical is set) will be available for mezzanine and balcony seats for the first preview on Thursday, October 7. Tickets for $19.31 will also be available for balcony seats for performances through Thursday, October 14. The ticket offer is available at the box office on September 2 only and will be sold on a first come, first served basis. THE SCOTTSBORO BOYS opens on Broadway on Sunday, October 31.
THE SCOTTSBORO BOYS is the thrilling new musical by John Kander and Fred Ebb (Chicago, Cabaret). Based on the notorious “Scottsboro” case in the 1930s (in which nine African-American men were unjustly accused of a terrible crime) this daring and wildly entertaining musical explores a fascinating chapter in American history with brilliant originality. This critically-acclaimed production, directed and choreographed by five-time Tony Award winner Susan Stroman (The Producers) and featuring a book by David Thompson (who adapted the script for Chicago‘s record-breaking revival), comes to Broadway following sold-out runs at the Vineyard Theatre and the Guthrie Theater.
THE SCOTTSBORO BOYS will be produced on Broadway by Barry and Fran Weissler, Jacki Barlia Florin and The Vineyard Theatre.
The Lyceum Theatre is located at 149 West 45th Street. Performances are Tuesday through Sunday at 8:00 PM, with matinees Saturday and Sunday at 3:00 PM.
