PARADE In Concert
Toronto Musical Concerts (TMC) presents a professional staged reading of Jason Robert Brown's musical, PARADE In Concert on Thursday, March 21st and Friday, March 22nd, 2019 @ 7:30pm at the Al Green Theatre (Miles Nadal Jewish Community Centre - 750 Spadina Ave). Come join us!
In 1913 Atlanta, Georgia, a teenage factory employee is raped and murdered. Leo Frank, the Jewish manager of the factory, is charged with the crime. By manipulating witnesses and tampering with evidence, the prosecution convinces the jury that Frank is guilty. His only defenders are a Governor with a conscience and his loving Wife, who finds the courage and strength to become his greatest champion. Considered one of the most sensational trials of the early 20th century, the Frank case disturbingly reflects the worlds current political and social climate amid antisemitism, racism, intolerance, divisiveness and violence.
The winner of two Tony Awards for best book and score, and the Drama Desk and New York Critics Circle awards for best musical, Parade explores the endurance of love and hope against all odds. With book by acclaimed playwright, Alfred Uhry (Driving Miss Daisy) and a rousing, colourful and haunting score by Jason Robert Brown (Songs For A New World, The Last Five Years, Bridges of Madison County), Parade is a powerful and moving examination of the darkest corners of human history.
PARADE In Concert features professional musical theatre talents: Mark Cassius (Newt Lee); Eric Craig (Leo Frank); Jonathan Cullen (Frankie Epps); Michael De Rose (Hugh Dorsey); Ma-Anne Dionisio (Lucille Frank); Quinn Dooley (Iola Stover); Alana Hibbert (Minola McKnight); Ryan Kelly (Luther Rosser); Lisa Kisch (Sally Slaton); Joseph Lévesque (Governor Slaton / Britt Craig); Geoffrey Tyler (Tom Watson); Jenny Weisz (Mary Phagan); and Christopher Wilson (Judge Roan).
