  Parade (musical) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Parade is a musical that opened on Broadway at the Vivian Beaumont Theater on December 17, 1998 with a book by Alfred Uhry and music and lyrics by Jason Robert Brown.
The closing of the show was not because of the quality of Parade, but was due largely to the charges of the fraud against Garth Drabinksy, and the ensuing bankruptcy of Livent, the company producing Parade.
The UK première ran from 5th to 28 August at the Southside Theatre as part of the 2005 Edinburgh Fringe, playing by the end of the run to packed houses and standing ovations.

 Parade: This Is Not Over Yet
This is the premise for PARADE, a new musical about the all-too-real Leo Frank case, which involved a not-so-nice man wrongfully convicted of murder.
PARADE has the lynching occur some time before April of 1915, so that the show can end on the second anniversary of the child's death.
Leo Frank was not in the courtroom when he was declared guilty; the judge was certain that he would be acquitted, and was afraid of mob violence (such a decision today would be grounds for a mistrial).

The striking building on Anzac Parade in Kensington has already won accolades for its design and there's little doubt that it will win ovations from audiences as well.
The inaugural public event to open the theatre is the sprawling Australian epic Country Music written by Nick Enright in collaboration with NIDA's third-year students.
The co-directors describe the piece, a work-in-progress, as "a theatre poem, a dream play" which up to a point is true but the script's wavering quality, use of caricature and overripe metaphors make Country Music something of an emblematic, heart-felt jamboree.
