Landor Theatre announces new season

Scottsboro Boys extends by a month at Young Vic

The UK premiere production of Kander and Ebb's last musical is now booking until 21 December

By • London

The UK premiere run of The Scottsboro Boys has extended at the Young Vic to 21 December 2013.

The show was the last musical co-written by Broadway's legendary writing partners, John Kander (composer) and Fred Ebb (lyricist), before Ebb's death in 2004.

The UK premiere, which opens at the Young Vic next month (29 October, previews from 18 October), was initially booking to 23 November.

The Scottsboro Boys is directed and choreographed by Susan Stroman, who also helmed the world premiere at Off-Broadway's Vineyard Theatre in 2010.

The Scottsboro Boys, which premiered Off-Broadway in 2010, tells the true story of nine young black men, aged between 12 and 19, who were falsely accused of rape by two white women while travelling on a train through Scottsboro, Alabama in the 1930s. Their subsequent trials and appeals, lasting seven years, deeply divided the nation.
