Based on the true story of Leo Frank, convicted for the murder of 13-year-old Mary Phagan in Atlanta, Georgia, in 1913, Parade recounts the press frenzy and public outrage about Frank’s trial, and his wife’s crusade for justice. Amid religious intolerance, political injustice and racial tension, this stirring Tony Award®-winning musical explores the endurance of love and hope against all the odds.
Featuring a powerful score by the award-winning composer of 13, Parade is “one of the most thrilling evenings of a theater-lover’s lifetime.” —Christian Science Monitor
