Broadway composer Jason Robert Brown made a splash with this daring 1999 musical. Parade is the story of Leo Frank -- a proud, soft-spoken Northern Jew living in the American South in 1913. Frank is wrongly accused and convicted of killing a 13-year-old-girl. The story spreads like wildfire through the newspapers, along with virulent anti-semitism feelings. Although the subject matter is disturbing, at the heart of the musical is a passionate love story and a rich, multi-layered score.
