The Museum of Jewish Heritage in association with National Yiddish Theatre Folksbiene will present An Evening on Parade March 7 at 7 PM. The event is set to feature a panel discussion with the musical’s creators, Jason Robert Brown and Alfred Uhry, as well as performances by Broadway actors Stephanie J. Block and Sebastian Arcelus.
An Evening on Parade will kick off MJH and NYTF’s History Revisited initiative. The museum is currently running an installation on the Leo Frank trial, Seeking Justice: The Leo Frank Case Revisited, which opened February 28. Frank, a Brooklyn Jewish man falsely accused of raping and murdering a young girl who worked in his pencil factory in 1913, is the central character of Parade, which musicalizes his real-life story.
Joining the show’s creators in a panel discussion will be Leo Frank trial historian Steve Oney. The panel will be moderated by producer and best-selling author Julie Burstein.
Evening on Parade will also feature ten musical numbers and scenes from the show. These will be performed by Arcelus and Block, who will play Frank and his wife, respectively. Other performers include Jesse Warren-Nager, Caitlin Houlihan, Caitlin Kinnunen and Allie Trimm.
Tickets are from $15 and include same-day admission to Seeking Justice: The Leo Frank Case Revisited. The Museum of Jewish Heritage is located at 36 Battery Place in Lower Manhattan. To purchase tickets, visit mjhnyc.org or call (646) 437-4202.
