See "Parade" Close to Home!




Dear Friend of American Theater Group:  

                                        “A Remarkable New Musical” 

                                                —David Patrick Stearns, USA Today   

 “It's rare, but sometimes in musical theater, everything comes together — story, music, performances — to produce moments that can't be duplicated in any other medium.”

                                          — Michael Kuchwara, Associated Press

“The book by Alfred Uhry, the gifted playwright and expert on Atlanta Jewish life, is consistently apt and gripping. It gamely tackles a complex and sprawling subject, neither oversimplifying nor forfeiting cohesiveness. It enlightens without preachment and lets the dramatic or ironic prose merge seamlessly with the musical numbers.”

                                                 — John Simon, New York Magazine

Those were some of the critical raves Parade received when it opened on Broadway in 1998. ATG is proud to present this Tony Award-winning musical by acclaimed playwright Alfred Uhry (Driving Miss Daisy) with a rousing and haunting score by Jason Robert Brown (Bridges of Madison County). 

It tells the heart-wrenching, true story of Leo Frank, a Brooklyn-raised Jewish man 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. 

Parade is a moving examination of the darkest corners of America's history and the story is, regrettably, painfully relevant in today’s political atmosphere. ATG will present the acclaimed Donmar Warehouse version, the first time this version has been done on the East Coast and will be directed by Broadway's Hunter Foster.  

I urge you to get your seats now for best selection.
