Photos of Parade at The Vault

ParadeCurrently playing at the Vault venue in the Victorian arches beneath London Bridge Station, the Southwark Playhouse presents a new production of musical Parade (until 17 September 2011).

With music and Lyrics by Jason Robert Brown and a book by Alfred Uhry, the show is set in Atlanta, Georgia in 1913, when Leo Frank, a Jewish factory manager from Brooklyn, is accused of the rape and murder of a 13 year old employee.

Following the true story of the sensational trial, the show had its Broadway premiere in 1998 and was nominated for nine Tony Awards, winning Best Book and Best Score. It also won Best New Musical at the Drama Desk and The New York Drama Critic’s Circle Awards.
