Berkeley Street Theatre Upstairs

In 1913 Atlanta, Georgia, a teenage factory employee is raped and murdered. Leo Frank, the young 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.

Considered one of the most sensational trials of the early 20th century, the Frank case pressed every hot-button issue of the time: North vs. South, black vs. white, Jewish vs. Christian, industrial vs. agrarian. The musical recounts the press frenzy and public outrage surrounding Frank’s trial and conviction, including his crusade for justice amid religious intolerance, political interference and racial tension.

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 has built an international following for its haunting score and powerful narrative. Acting Up Stage, now Musical Stage Company, and Studio 180 are proud to present its long-awaited Canadian premiere.

Alfred Uhry

Alfred Uhry

Book Writer

Mr. Uhry has the distinct honor of being the only American writer to win a Pulitzer Prize, an Academy Award and a Tony Award. A graduate of Brown University, Uhry left his native Atlanta for the bright lights of New York City as a newlywed in 1959 to become a lyricist. Struggling to make ends meet for almost twenty years, he hit success in 1976 with The Robber Bridegroom—a bawdy Southern fairy tale based on a Eudora Welty story for which he received a Tony Award nomination for Best Book of a Musical. (The Tony Award went to the writers of A Chorus Line.) Ten years later he wrote his first play, the smash hit, Pulitzer Prize-winning Driving Miss Daisy. He would later win an Academy Award for the movie adaptation starring Jessica Tandy and Morgan Freeman. Soon after, the Olympic Games’ Cultural Olympiad commissioned Uhry to write a play for the Summer 1996 Olympics in his hometown of Atlanta. Thus the Tony Award-winning Last Night of Ballyhoo was born. Known for writing charming, engaging yet somewhat quirky Southern characters, Mr. Uhry’s latest endeavor, Parade is a darker look at the nuances and history of the South. This chilling true-life story of the lynching of Leo Frank won a second Tony Award for Mr. Uhry as Best Book of a Musical in 1999.

Jason Robert Brown is a composer, lyricist, conductor, arranger, orchestrator, director, and performer. The Chicago Tribune called him “one of Broadway’s smartest and most sophisticated songwriters since Stephen Sondheim.” As a composer and lyricist, he wrote the complete scores for the Broadway musicals Parade (Tony Award for Best Score), 13, The Bridges of Madison County (Tony Awards for Best Score and Best Orchestrations), and Honeymoon in Vegas, and contributed songs to Urban Cowboy (which he also served as conductor and arranger) and Prince of Broadway (where he was musical supervisor and arranger). He made his professional debut as a composer and lyricist Off-Broadway in 1995 with the song cycle Songs for a New World, which has received hundreds of productions around the world.


Harold Prince

Harold Prince

Original Director

Harold Prince is an American theatrical producer and director who was recognized as one of the most creative and innovative figures on Broadway in the 20th century. The son of a New York stockbroker, Prince majored in English at the University of Pennsylvania (B.A., 1948) and began his theatrical career as an apprentice and stage manager for the noted producer and director George Abbott. In 1953 he began producing musicals (initially in partnership with Robert E. Griffith) and was highly successful in his first outing, The Pajama Game (1954). Prince received his first Tony Award when the production was named best musical. Over the next decade he had a string of hits that included Damn Yankees (1955), Fiorello! (1959), A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum (1962), and Fiddler on the Roof (1964), all of which garnered the Tony for best musical. During this time, he also produced the hugely popular West Side Story (1957). In 1962, with A Family Affair, Prince began directing musicals. He won directorial Tony Awards for Cabaret (1966) and Company (1970), both of which were also named best musical; Follies (1971; directed with Michael Bennett); Candide (1974); Sweeney Todd (1979); Evita (1979); The Phantom of the Opera (1988), which became Broadway’s longest-running musical in 2006; and a revival of Show Boat (1994). He also directed Zorba (1968); A Little Night Music (1973), another winner of the Tony for best musical; Kiss of the Spider Woman (1993); Parade (1998); and LoveMusik (2007). The popularity of his productions was evident by the number of their revivals. In 2017 he helmed the revue Prince of Broadway. Prince also directed the film Something for Everyone (1970). In addition, a number of his stage musicals were adapted as TV movies and films, the latter of which included A Little Night Music (1977), which he also helmed. In 2006 Prince won a Tony Award for lifetime achievement. Contradictions: Notes on Twenty-Six Years in the Theatre (1974) and Sense of Occasion (2017) were memoirs.

Reviews

A welcome reminder that there are still artists and producers who regard the musical as an art form. The show is studded with fine performances.

Eye Weekly

Absolutely compelling! Thirteen years has not dimmed the mighty impact of the Broadway musical Parade. It remains a compelling statement about social, political and legal injustice that is both well directed and well cast.

Classical 96.3FM

Powerful dramatic moments!

NOW Magazine

This is a powerful musical!
