Amid religious intolerance, political injustice and racial tension, the stirring Tony Award-winning PARADE explores the endurance of love and hope against all the odds. With a book by acclaimed playwright Alfred Uhry (Driving Miss Daisy) and a rousing, colorful and haunting score by Jason Robert Brown (Songs For A New World, The Last Five Years, Bridges Of Madison County), PARADE is a moving examination of the darkest corners of America's history.  

The Umbrella's Take: PARADE really packs a punch with one of the most heartbreakingly beautiful scores ever written for musical theatre and a love story at its core. We've been wanting to introduce our audiences to Jason Robert Brown’s music for some time now, and this is the perfect piece to round out our season. Though not the typical, uplifting spring musical, PARADE is guaranteed to be a moving, intimate, and unforgettable experience.
