SAN FRANCISCO (CBS SF) – Hal Linden, best known for his role in Barney Miller and cast mate Christopher Culberson stopped by the CBS 5 studio for a Bay Sunday interview to talk about their roles in the 12 time Tony nominated musical “The Scottsboro Boys” which plays now through July 22nd at the ACT in San Francisco. Culberson told CBS 5’s Michelle Griego during the interview that “the point was to walk away thinking about injustice and how one lie can affect the lives of nine people”
The play is based on the true story and trials in the 1930s in Alabama where two white women falsely accused nine African American young men of rape.
Linden added “it’s an indictment about a judicial system that hasn’t cleaned itself up yet.”
Both also discussed the controversial use of minstrel in the theatre.
