This tragic and true story, Parade dramatizes the 1913 trial of Jewish factory manager, Leo Frank, who was falsely accused and eventually convicted of murdering a 13-year old employee, Mary Phagan. Filled with beautiful and evocative music, Parade is at once a riveting murder mystery, a gripping courtroom drama, a moving love story, a profile in courage and a searing social commentary. Daring, innovative and bold, Parade won Tony Awards for Best Book and Best Score in 2000.

It is based on the book by Alfred Uhry. Music and lyrics by Jason Robert Brown. It was co-conceived and directed on Broadway by Harold Prince.
