The long awaited revival of Jason Robert Brownand Alfred Uhry's gripping Tony Award-winning murder mystery musical PARADE as presented in 2013 at Fullerton's Plummer Auditorium by 3-D Theatricals (3DT) of Los Angeles and Orange County, once again takes a bow at two Southern California main stage theatres. It began June 1 - 10 at the Cerritos Center for the Performing Arts and now continues June 15 - 24, 2018 at the Redondo Beach Performing Arts Center.

With a Book by Alfred Uhry (Pulitzer Prize and Academy Award winner for DRIVING MISS DAISY) and Music and Lyrics by Jason Robert Brown (THE LAST FIVE YEARS), PARADE is a tragic and true story of the 1913 of a Brooklyn-born Jewish factory manager Leo Frank who was accused of raping and murdering a 13 year old employee, Mary Phagan. Already guilty in the eyes of those around him, the dramatic courtroom trial sensationalized by the media, aroused anti-Semitic tensions in Atlanta and the state of Georgia.

The musical was first produced on Broadway in 1998 and was directed by Harold Prince. Even though it closed after a short stay at the Vivian Beaumont Theatre, the musical made a profound impact with the Broadway League and the American Theatre Wing...thus showering the production with Tony Awards in 1999 for Best Book and Best Original Score (out of nine nominations); and six Drama Desk Awards (Outstanding Musical, Outstanding Actor, Outstanding Actress, Outstanding Featured Actor, Outstanding Orchestrations and Outstanding Music.

Like New York, voting members of the LA Stage Alliance (a non-profit arts service organization dedicated to building awareness, appreciation, and support for the performing arts in Greater Los Angeles), were deeply touched by 3-D Theatricals' production of PARADE; so much so, that it was nominated for fifteen Los Angeles Ovation Awards, earning four in the "Large Theatre" categories of Best Musical, Best Lead Actor in a Musical; Best Featured Actor in a Musical and Best Acting Ensemble in a Musical.

3-D Theatricals' Executive Producer and Artistic Director T.J. Dawson will once again direct the upcoming revival, supported by key returning Creative Team members David Lamoureux (Music Director) and Choreographers Dana Solimando and Estevan Valdes.

Broadway's Davis Gaines, best known to audiences for his portrayal of the Phantom in Andrew Lloyd Webber's The Phantom of the Opera both on Broadway and a record setting run of performances as the Phantom at the Ahmanson Theatre in Los Angeles, Gaines will portray local court prosecutor Hugh Dorsey in 3DT's PARADE.

Jeff Skowron (Broadway: Beauty and the Beast, The Lion King and The Boy from Oz) also returns to recreate PARADE's pivotal starring role of Leo Frank for which he won the 2013 Los Angeles Ovation Award as Best Lead Actor in a Musical;

Rufus Bonds, Jr. (Broadway: Parade, Rent, Once on This Island) also returns as factory janitor and ex-convict Jim Conley; the role he created on Broadway and for which he won a 2013 Los Angeles Ovation Award as Best Featured Actor in a Musical, preceded by a 1999 New York Drama Desk nomination as Outstanding Featured Actor.

Additional theatre information regarding tickets, individual performance dates and times, parking, and a complete list of ensemble casting will be soon be announced with the majority of the ensemble also returning from 3DT's 2013 production. 3dtheatricals.org
