Michael, I was so sad to read the closing notice. As you've said, The Scottsboro Boys is one of the most important, original shows to arrive on Broadway in a while. I visit NYC about twice a year now and have the opportunity to see almost all the major, worthwhile shows - but it's killing me that I don't have time for an emergency NYC trip in the next two weeks to see The Scottsboro Boys. (I made an emergency trip for Ragtime last year - one of the best decisions I've ever made.)

I feel like there's a bit of a gaping hole in my Broadway theatergoing now - especially since my dissertation is all about concepts of integration (formal and social integration) in musical theater.

You should be very proud of your first Broadway venture as something provocative, political, *and* entertaining. (Or so I hear!) Know that there are many supporters out there who have been following faithfully, even though they haven't had the chance to see the show themselves!

Michael, I saw the show and thought the staging was brilliant. It's really disappointing that it's closing down from such a mainstream audience, especially given the excesses in budgets that are devoted to the big musicals. And any criticism of the show surely came from those who had not seen the show.

Find a way to take it into as many high schools as you can and keep telling your story. It needs to be told. We need to move beyond ourselves and your play can help us do that.
