2023 TONY AWARD® WINNER FOR BEST REVIVAL OF A MUSICAL & GRAMMY AWARD® NOMINEE FOR BEST MUSICAL THEATER ALBUM ANNOUNCES NORTH AMERICAN TOUR LAUNCH

New York, NY (June 25) – The producers of the acclaimed Broadway revival of Parade, winner of the 2023 Tony Award® for Best Revival of a Musical, announced today that tickets for its run in Schenectady are on sale now. The production will run technical rehearsals and have its first public performances at Proctors in Schenectady, Saturday, Jan. 11 to Friday, Jan. 17, 2025, followed by its official tour premiere at Hennepin Theatre Trust’s historic Orpheum Theatre in Minneapolis. Tickets are available through the Box Office at Proctors in-person, via phone at (518) 346-6204 Monday-Saturday 10 a.m.-6 p.m. or online by visiting atproctors.org. 

In a joint statement, the producers of Parade said, “When Jason Robert Brown’s and Alfred Uhry’s masterpiece played its record-breaking and sold-out runs at New York City Center and on Broadway, it was heralded by critics for its stellar performances, magnificent score, impassioned direction, and of course, its timeliness. We are honored that we can bring Parade to audiences across North America so that they too can experience this once in a lifetime production in this moment in history.”

“I’m thrilled to highlight the positive economic impact that the teching of Parade brings to Schenectady,” says Proctors CEO Philip Morris. “Hosting such a high-caliber production in our theatre not only enriches our cultural landscape but also stimulates local businesses, creates jobs, and attracts visitors from far and wide, bolstering our community’s economy and vibrancy.”

Parade is directed by Tony Award® winner Michael Arden, with 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 co-conceived by 21-time Tony Award®-winning legend Harold Prince.

The production has received overwhelming acclaim since its debut. The New York Times said, “this revival, filled with deft flourishes by director Michael Arden, recalls an era of big casts, big stories and big talent – a time when musicals actually felt like events.” Entertainment Weekly called Parade “the most gorgeous production on Broadway.” Deadline proclaimed that Parade is “a work of art! As commanding as any musical revival to hit Broadway in years.” Time Out New York stated that “Parade will echo for a long time to come. See it before the parade passes by.”

Leo and Lucille Frank are a newlywed Jewish couple struggling to make a life in the old red hills of Georgia. When Leo is accused of an unspeakable crime, it propels them into an unimaginable test of faith, humanity, justice, and devotion. Riveting and gloriously hopeful, Parade reminds us that to love, we must truly see one another.

Parade played its final performance of its strictly limited Broadway engagement on Sunday, Aug. 6, 2023. This production first premiered at New York City Center where it was instantly sold out, playing Nov. 1-6, 2022.
