About Parade: The tragic, true story of the trial and lynching of Leo Frank. Amid religious intolerance, political injustice, and racial tension, the stirring Tony Award-winning PARADE explores the endurance of love and hope against all odds. With book by playwright Alfred Uhry (Driving Miss Daisy) and a colorful and haunting score by Jason Robert Brown (The Last Five Years), PARADE is a moving examination of the darkest corners of American history. In 1913, Frank, a Brooklyn-raised Jew living in Georgia, is put on trial for the murder of a 13-year-old factory worker under his employ. Already guilty in the public eye, 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 to become his greatest champion. A moral lesson about the dangers of prejudice and ignorance that should not be forgotten.
