'Parade' was the 1999 Tony Award winner for the Best Score by Jason Robert Brown and Best Book by Alfred Uhry. This bold and daring musical, based on a true story, tells of Leo Frank, a middle-aged Jewish factory manager wrongfully accused of murdering one of his young employees. This is, has been, and always will be one of the most moving musical masterpieces, and my personal favorite musical. The music is beyond words and the finale gives me goosebumps. Although difficult to play on the piano and sometimes to sing (it doesn't go that high, but the female solos belt D's and E's). 'Parade' ran on Broadway for ten weeks in winter 1998-99 for 84 performances and was critically acclaimed by many. This show really desereves another chance.
