The tragic, true story. The trial of a man wrongly accused of murder brought to theatrical life. Amid religious intolerance, political injustice and racial tension, this Tony Award-winning musical expertly tells the story of a south trying to maintain its pre-war identity, a newspaper man looking for his big break, an ambitious prosecutor and, at its heart, the love story between a husband and wife as their world is being ripped apart. Parade is filled with soaring music and a heart-wrenching story, offering a moral lesson about the dangers of prejudice, and ignorance that should not be forgotten.
