October 26 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm
An event every day that begins at 7:30 pm, repeating until October 26, 2019
Parade will begin at 7:30 p.m. in Glaize Studio Theatre, Ruebush Hall. Amid religious intolerance, political injustice and racial tension, the stirring Tony Award-winning “Parade” explores the endurance of love and hope against all odds. Daring, innovative and bold, the musical recounts the true story of Leo Frank, a Brooklyn-raised Jew living in Georgia, who is put on trial for the 1913 rape and murder of 13-year-old Mary Phagan, a factory worker under his employ. Already guilty in the eyes of everyone around him, a sensationalist publisher and a janitor’s false testimony seal Leo’s fate. His only defenders are a governor with a conscience and, eventually, his assimilated Southern wife who finds the strength and love to become his greatest champion.
