Leo Frank’s trial and conviction is a shocking miscarriage of justice that leads to tragedy. Based on true events, the Tony-award-winning Parade is not your average feel-good musical. Yet this powerful tale of racism and false patriotism, set to a striking score that ranges from soaring anthems to ragtime and blues, is a timely reminder of the ugly consequences of ignorance and fear.
