With a book by acclaimed playwright Alfred Uhry (‘Driving Miss Daisy’) and a rousing, colourful and haunting score by Jason Robert Brown (‘Songs for a New World’, ‘The Last Five Years’, ‘Bridges of Madison County’), ‘Parade’ is a moving examination of the darkest corners of America’s history.
In 1913, Leo Frank, a Brooklyn-raised Jew living in Georgia, is put on trial for the murder of 13 year old Mary Phagan. Already guilty in the eyes of everyone around him, a sensationalist journalist and a caretaker’s false testimony seal Leo’s fate. His only defenders are a governor with a conscience and, eventually, his southern wife who finds the strength and love to become his greatest champion.
Daring, innovative and bold, ‘Parade’ is filled with soaring music and a heart-wrenching story, offering a moral lesson about the dangers of xenophobia, prejudice and ignorance that should not be forgotten.
"You are coming home, Leo. It's only a matter of time"
