The Los Angeles premiere of the 2010 Broadway hit reenacts the tale of the unjustly accused Scottsboro Nine as a irreverent musical carnival with stinging social commentary.
From Charles McNulty's review in the L.A. Times:
"Joshua Henry, who received a Tony nomination for his performance as Haywood Patterson, is back in the cast of Susan Stroman's supremely polished production. And his powerhouse performance as one of nine black youths unjustly accused of raping two white Southern women who happened to be passengers on the same Memphis-bound train gives this dazzling, envelope-pushing show a beautiful gravity."
8 p.m. Tues.- Fri.,
2, 8 p.m. Sat.,
