‘Parade’ revival to release cast album

A cast album of the 2023 “Parade” revival will be released by Interscope Records on March 23. The musical features a Tony Award-winning score by Jason Robert Brown.

The revival, starring Tony winner Ben Platt and Micaela Diamond and directed by two-time Tony nominee Michael Arden, features orchestrations by two-time Tony winner Don Sebesky and musical direction by Tom Murray. This production originated at New York City Center in November 2022.

“Parade” is a Tony Award-winning musical with music and lyrics by Jason Robert Brown and a book by Alfred Uhry. The musical premiered on Broadway in 1998 and tells the true story of Leo Frank, a Jewish factory manager from Brooklyn, who was falsely accused and convicted of the murder of a young girl in Atlanta, Georgia, in 1913.

The musical explores themes of anti-Semitism, prejudice, and injustice, and features a score that blends elements of traditional Broadway and Southern folk music. The original production of “Parade” received nine Tony nominations, winning two, including Best Book and Best Original Score. The show has been produced in theaters around the world and has become a favorite of theater lovers for its powerful story and emotional score.

The Broadway transfer of “Parade” began previews at the Bernard B. Jacobs Theatre on Feb. 21 and officially opened on March 16. The production is playing a limited run through Aug. 6.
