Thought I would mention a musical that's on in New York right now
called THE SCOTTSBORO BOYS. It's being presented as a "minstrel show"
- I haven't seen it so I can't comment on any authenticity in how it's
presented. The timeframe for the show is the 1930s - so it's later
than the timeframe for this site. I know this is a bit off-topic, but still, I thought if anyone on this
site is in or around NYC - and has an interest in musical theatre! -
s/he might want to try to see it.
It's being presented at the Vineyard Theatre: http://www.vineyardtheatre.org/show-the-scottsboro-boys.html
Here's a NY Post article on the show:
