The Tony Award-winning musical drama Parade features the true story of Leo Frankís trial and lynching in early 20th-century Atlanta. Ostracized for his faith and Northern heritage, Jewish factory manager Leo Frank is accused of murdering a teenaged factory girl the day of the annual Confederate Memorial Day parade. Alfred Uhryís award-winning book and Jason Robert Brownís rousing, colorful and haunting score illuminate a circus of conflicting accounts, false testimony and mishandled evidence in a town reeling with social and racial tension. Isolated from the world, Leo develops a new and deeper love for his wife, who tirelessly crusades for his freedom. Stephen Rayne (The Heavens Are Hung In Black, Sabrina Fair) directs this compelling and provocative tale of justice miscarried, revealing a country at odds with its declarations of equality. Tony-Award nominee Euan Morton stars as Leo Frank. Parade is a co-production with Theater J and is presented in association with the Anti-Defamation League and Jewish Historical Society of Greater Washington.

Take in the sights, sounds and smells of New York City, seen from a unique perspective. Gracie, an English cocker spaniel, sniffs out the best the Big Apple has to offer and shares her impressions in a new children's and dog-lover's book released by Dog Ear Publishing. It's the third book in a series of Grace Guides. 'The Gracie Guide to New York City' takes readers on a whirlwind tour of the city's highlights from renowned buildings such as the Flat Iron Building, Chrysler Building, New York Public Library and Little Church Around the Corner to cultural destinations such as the Guggenheim Museum, Cloisters, Museum of Modern Art, Wall Street, the 9/11 Memorial and Lincoln Center. The Plaza Hotel (more than 100 years old) and its famous fictional resident Eloise are one of Gracie's favorites, as is the building that seems as if it's been named after her: Gracie Mansion, which housed several New York mayors after serving as an ice cream parlor, school and a museum. She also describes shopping, the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade, Santa's arrival and Christmas at Rockefeller Center: all magical moments. 'Gracie's Guide' includes tips for getting along with doormen and friends at Madison Square Park's doggy playground, and she can't pass up a chance to recommend a few restaurants. Charming illustrations with plenty of personality - created by Anne E. Moses - capture the spirit of the city and its many attractions for young and old. Moses has lived in Switzerland, Italy, Greece and the United Kingdom. The author and illustrator was born in the United States, but she and her husband, Bill, who live in Athens, Greece, travel extensively with Gracie. Moses also wrote the companion books 'The Grace Guide to Good Manners for Proper Pooches' and 'The Grace Guide to Her Really Fun ABCs,' as well as the illustrated children's bedtime story 'Gatos Musikos: A Secret Told by the Moon.' Gracie, an English cocker spaniel, was born in Hungary. She loves to swim in the sea and go on adventures. She and Moses plan to pair up again to create other Gracie Guides featuring cities around the world. For additional information, please visit The Gracie Guide to New York City Anne E.
