Civic Auditorium

Have you ever felt misunderstood by everyone around you? How do you overcome untruths in a legal system that seems to be set against proving your innocence? The Tony-award-winning musical, Parade, is set in 1913. Leo Frank is a Jewish Brooklyn native, now residing in rural Georgia. He finds himself on trial for the murder of 13-year-old Mary Phagan, a girl under his employ at a local pencil factory. With a soaring score by Jason Robert Brown and book by Alfred Uhry, Parade delivers a powerful message about religious intolerance, social injustice, and the resilience of love in the face of insurmountable odds.

Parade Book by Alfred Uhry Music & Lyrics by Jason Robert Brown
Co-Conceived and Directed on Broadway by HAROLD PRINCE
