The tragic, true story of the trial and lynching of a man wrongly accused of murder is brought to emotional and theatrical life by acclaimed playwright Alfred Uhry (“Driving Miss Daisy”) and Jason Robert Brown, one of Broadway’s best composers ('Songs For A New World', 'The Last Five Years').

In 1913, Leo Frank, a Brooklyn-born 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 testimony seal Leo’s fate. His only defenders are a governor with a conscience, and eventually his assimilated Southern wife, who finds the strength and love to become his greatest champion.

Daring, innovative and bold, “Parade” won well-earned Tony Awards for Best Book and Best Score in 2000. Its subject matter offers a moral lesson about the dangers of prejudice and ignorance that should not be forgotten.
