The play was excellent. It was a part of history unknown to me. I left the theatre with friends discussing the play and wondering what happened to the people. I was... continued

The cast was truly excellent and very convincing. I would have preferred some of the songs to be dialogue as opposed to music, particularly in the first act. Nonetheless, it was emotional and very thought provoking!

Arden Theater did what Broadway couldn't. The original production did not last long because it wasn't clearlyfocused on the human tragedy. Arden's production used a... continued

As always, the Arden puts on a tremendous production. I have been wanting to see "Parade" for some time as I missed it when it was briefly on Broadway back in the late 90s. The cast was outstanding. Highly recommend.

Easily the greatest score of the past twenty years. Unfortunately, the new licensed version features scaled down orchestrations that prevent the audience from hearing... continued

Somber play but incredible staging and the vocals and acting were superlative. A creative interpretation of the play that proves a fascinating night of theatre. See it - you will not be disappointed.

At first I thought the concept of this play, a musical about a historical event, was doomed to failure.

Before I knew it my attention and emotions were totally... continued

I thought the performance was outstanding. I really did not know the story of Leo Frank before seeing the show, but when I left I certainly did. Since I am Jewish, I... continued

Parade was a wonderful play tackling both Anti-Semitism and North vs. South issues in Atlanta, 50 years after the end of the Civil War. It was an operetta with great acting and beautiful voices.

The theater was good, the seats were comfortable, there was an appreciative crowd that night, the show started on time, an innovative production. Story not my cup of tea.

This show is brilliant and a masterpiece of theatre. The staging, actors, storyline and music are all top notch. I would suggest that everyone runs and doesn't walk to see this production.
