Based on the true story of a trial that captivated the nation, Parade is the tale of Leo Frank, a Jewish factory-owner transplanted to Georgia and married to a Southerner. When a young girl in his employ is found murdered, Leo’s life is swept up by the intense forces of anti-Semitism and sensationalistic journalism in early 20th-century Atlanta. Leo’s struggle to maintain his identity in the face of extreme prejudice, his wife Lucille’s arc from privileged housewife to empowered crusader for truth and justice, and a region grappling with the complexities of its history, come urgently to life in Tony-winning composer Jason Robert Brown and Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright Alfred Uhry’s modern musical classic. A timeless romance. A gripping legal drama. A story for our tumultuous modern moment, ripped from the headlines of a century ago. Parade offers audiences a chilling and urgent reminder of bigotry’s dire consequences.
Approximate run time: Parade plays in 2 hours 30 minutes with one 15 minute intermission.
