Stroman to helm ‘Scottsboro Boys’ in U.K.

Production to run Oct. 18-Nov. 23

LONDON

Susan Stroman (“The Producers”) will helm and choreograph the U.K. preem of Kander and Ebb’s tuner “The Scottsboro Boys” at leading off-West End producing house The Young Vic this fall.

The final tuner from composer John Kander and the late lyricist Fred Ebb tells a true story of racial injustice through the theatrical conventions of a minstrel show. Directed by Stroman, it preemed at Gotham’s Vineyard in February 2010 and then transferred to Broadway for a 49-perf run.

The Young Vic and Catherine Schreiber production will run Oct. 18-Nov. 23 with an Oct. 29 opening. Casting has yet to be announced.
