Parade, the Jason Robert Brown-Alfred Uhry-Harold Prince musical about murder and anti-Semitism in 1912 Atlanta, has been nominated for a Best Musical Tony Award.
The serious-minded musical tells of the strengthening relationship between Brooklyn-born Jew Leo Frank and his wife, Lucille, after he is wrongly accused of murdering a child. The story is based on fact.
Co-produced by Lincoln Center and Livent, the musical had a short run that garnered mixed notices and mixed audience response: It ran Dec. 17, 1998 Feb. 28, 1999.
Livent is also the producer of Fosse, which has also been nominated for Best Musical in 1999.
