A Tony Award-winning musical, Parade tells the tragic and true story of the trial and death of a man wrongfully accused of murder. With a book by acclaimed playwright Alfred Uhry and a wonderfully composed score by Jason Robert Brown, Parade examines one of the darkest times of uncertainty, injustice and tension in America’s history. Taking place in 1913, this rousing show follows the trial of Jewish factory manager, Leo Frank, who was accused and convicted of raping and murdering his 13-year-old employee.

Parade offers a powerful, bold and moving theatrical experience that offers a moral lesson about the terrifying effects of prejudice that should not be forgotten.
