ABOUT THE MUSICAL, "PARADE"

Book by Alfred Uhry; Music and Lyrics by Jason Robert Brown;

Co-Conceived and Directed on Broadway by Harold Prince

 

Winner of Tony Awards for Best Book and Best Score, the tragic, true story of the trial and lynching of a man wrongly accused of murder is brought to theatrical life.​ In true fashion Theatre Nebula brings you an impactful production in tune with their mission to present shows that give the audience insight into historical events and explore the human condition.

 

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. With a book by acclaimed playwright Alfred Uhry (Driving Miss Daisy) and a rousing, colorful and haunting score by Jason Robert Brown (Songs For a New World, The Last Five Years, Bridges of Madison County), Parade is a moving examination of the darkest corners of America's history.

 

In 1913, Leo Frank, a Brooklyn-raised Jew living in Georgia, is put on trial for the murder of thirteen-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, eventually, his assimilated 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.
