WHEN: March 9-11th WHERE: Maurice Levin Theater at the JCC
MetroWest, 760 Northfield Ave., West Orange, NJ
We are thrilled to be able to expand our patron base by presenting this
brilliant musical in an additional location. As many of you know, ATG had
its roots in Essex County for a number of seasons and we are happy to
return and provide our loyal, long-time patrons the opportunity to
experience this production closer to home. We are confident that
performing in this second venue will help ensure a broader audience for
what promises to be amazing theater. We will also present our next
production, Right to Be Forgotten, at both
venues in May.
In addition to winning the prestigious Drama Desk award for "Best
Musical" in 1999, Parade received Tony Awards for
both "Best Score" and "Best Book of a
Musical." Written by acclaimed playwright Alfred Uhry (Driving
Miss Daisy), with a magnificent score by Jason Robert
Brown (Bridges of Madison County), this enthralling show
tells the heart-wrenching, true story of Leo Frank, a Brooklyn-raised
Jewish man living in Atlanta who was wrongfully convicted of the murder
of a 13-year-old employee.
Amid religious intolerance, political
injustice and racial tension, the stirring musical explores the endurance
of love and hope against all odds. Paradeis
a moving examination of the darkest corners of America's history, and I
urge you to experience it with us.
Tickets are currently on sale for both the JCC MetroWest and the
Sieminski Theater. Please order early for best seating.
As always, I thank you for your ongoing support.
