GOSSIP: Scottsboro Boys to transfer to the Garrick Theatre?

The rumored next show for the Garrick Theatre is tipped to be Kander & Ebb's Scottsboro Boys from June. As yet though, this is unconfirmed and unannounced.

Scottsboro Boys, which has been nominated for six Olivier Awards, including Best New Musical and Best Actor in a Musical for Kyle Scatliffe - received its UK premiere at the Young Vic in October 2013, directed by five-time Tony Award winner of The Producers, Susan Stroman.
 
Scottsboro Boys 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.

Rumours are circulating that the announcement of the transfer to the Garrick Theatre will be made after the results of the Olivier Awards are announced.

 
Scottsboro Boys tickets on sale soon.
