Kander & Ebb’s “Scottsboro Boys” brings up the close May 21-June 30.

“This new season at the Ahmanson will be like a blast of creative energy from beginning to end,” Center Theater Group artistic director Michael Ritchie said. “It’s the successful, the entertaining, the enlightening theatrical season when range, variety and theatricality are its hallmarks. This new season at the Ahmanson Theatre reaches all those marks, and then some.”
