'The Scottsboro Boys' at The Young Vic

We went to watch the musical, Scottsboro Boys, at the Young Vic and it was AMAZING! A very emotional story about nine young black boys who get accused of a crime in 1931 in Alabama, USA. It's based on a true story and the dancing and singing from the cast were outstanding. Like true groupies, we even managed to get a few sneaky pics with the cast after the show much to the delight of the dancers.

Here's the blurb from the Young Vic website about the show:

"Kander and Ebb’s exhilarating, dazzling and provocative musical receives its UK premiere, once again directed by Susan Stroman, 5-time Tony Award-winning director and choreographer of The Producers.

1931. Nine black teenagers board a train in Scottsboro, Alabama, in search of a new life. By the end of their journey, their lives – and those of every American – would be changed forever.

Accused of an unspeakable crime, their trial would divide a nation. But behind the screaming headlines was the devastating story of nine young men, desperate to prove to the world that they mattered.

Nominated for a remarkable 12 Tony Awards including Best Musical, The Scottsboro Boys is bold, wildly inventive and a daring modern classic of musical theatre.

Step right up and meet the Scottsboro Boys. Their story will change everything…"
