BWW Review: Singular PARADE Receives Its Due Once More by 3-D Theatricals in RedondoBWW Review: Singular PARADE Receives Its Due Once More by 3-D Theatricals in Redondo

And, in my mind, this bigger hybrid version surpasses the Taper's for its grande musical elegance and the presence of a perfectly cast lead actor in the role of Leo Frank, Jeff Skowron. (more...)
