Parade (3/4)

List item

Another Jason Robert Brown musical off the stage too soon. Parade is based on the real-life story of Leo Frank, a Jewish factory manager in 1913 Georgia, who is accused of the murder of a young girl. The original cast featured the talents of Brent Carver and Carolee Carmello. Parade made its Broadway debut in 1998. It won a few Tonys, and while the show initially had several productions, it is fairly unknown today. The most recent production was a concert version conducted by Jason Robert Brown himself and starring Jeremy Jordan and Laura Benanti. Listen to the Original Broadway Cast recording here.
