Tony Award® winner Ben Platt and Micaela Diamond will reprise their acclaimed performances in two-time Tony Award nominated director Michael Arden’s celebrated new production of PARADE, which will play a strictly limited engagement at Broadway’s Bernard B. Jacobs Theatre following a sold-out run at New York City Center.
With previews beginning Tuesday 21 February 2023, the production will officially open on Thursday 16 March and run to Sunday 6 August 2023.
PARADE has a book by two-time Tony Award winner, Pulitzer Prize winner, and Academy Award® winner Alfred Uhry, music and lyrics by three-time Tony Award winner Jason Robert Brown, and was co-conceived by 21-time Tony Award-winning legend Harold Prince.
Additional casting and other news about Parade will be announced in the coming weeks.
Leo and Lucille Frank (Ben Platt and Micaela Diamond) are a newlywed Jewish couple struggling to make a life in the old red hills of Georgia.

Riveting and gloriously hopeful, PARADE reminds us that to love, we must truly see one another.
