The lynching of Leo Frank in 1915 by the Knights of Mary Phagan, sent shock waves through the nation, and marked the rebirth of the modern Ku Klux Klan. The musical Parade challenges the problems of anti-Semitism, racism, provincialism and blind hate, by asking us to get to know these characters as real people. The music and lyrics by Tony Award-winning composer Jason Robert Brown (The Bridges of Madison County, Songs for a New World), take you on an emotional and personal journey inside the relationships and problems of the people caught in this turmoil.  Parade transcends the surface of the case, and asks us to consider whether the real evil doesn’t live inside each of us.

Hours: Monday-Saturday 10am-4pm. Closed Sundays and major holidays.
