A Broadway Musical

Amid religious intolerance, political injustice and racial tension, the stirring Tony Award-winning Parade explores the endurance of love and hope against all the odds. Based on the book by acclaimed playwright Alfred Uhry (Driving Miss Daisy) and with a rousing, colourful and haunting score by Jason Robert Brown (Songs For a New WorldThe Last Five YearsBridges of Madison County), Parade is a moving examination of the darkest corners of America’s history and injustice.

In 1913, Leo Frank, a Brooklyn-raised Jew living in Georgia, is put on trial for the murder of 13 year-old Mary Phagan, a factory worker under his employ. Already guilty in the eyes of everyone around him, a sensationalist publisher and a janitor’s false testimony seal Leo’s fate. His only defenders are a governor with a conscience and 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 prejudice and ignorance that should not be forgotten.
