The acclaimed, sold-out New York City Center production of Parade starring Tony, Grammy and Emmy Award winner Ben Platt is moving to Broadway in the can’t-miss event of the year.
Platt and rising star Micaela Diamond (The Cher Show) reprise their “powerhouse performance for the ages” (The New York Times) in Jason Robert Brown and Alfred Uhry’s Tony-winning musical, under the visionary direction of Michael Arden (Once On This Island – Best Revival Tony winner).
Leo and Lucille Frank are a newlywed Jewish couple struggling to make a life in the old red hills of Georgia. When Leo is accused of an unspeakable crime, it propels them into an unimaginable test of faith, humanity, justice and devotion. Riveting and gloriously hopeful, Parade reminds us that to love, we must truly see one another.
