Parade

The Tony Award-winning musical drama Parade features the true story of Leo Frank’s 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 Uhry’s award-winning book and Jason Robert Brown’s 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.

Il musical THE LAST FIVE YEARS ha debuttato a Chicago nel 2001 e la sua prima in un Teatro Off-Broadway risale al 2002. Più recentemente nel 20013 un acclamato revival sempre Off-Broadway, lo ha riportato in auge tanto da meritare nel 2014 una trasposizione cinematografica con Anna Kendricks e Jeremy Jordan nei ruoli dei due innamorati/sposi/divorziati. Arriva in Italia con la traduzione di Daniele Adriani al Teatro Don Mario Torregrossa. La trama si svolge attorno ai 5 anni di vita di una coppia in un intrigante e inusuale percorso temporale agli opposti. La giovane Cathy, attrice in cerca di affermazione, inizia a raccontare la loro relazione dalla sua fine, mentre Jaime, giovane scrittore in brillante ascesa, la racconta dal loro primo incontro: in scena i due interagiscono in un unico duetto al momento della proposta di matrimonio per poi proseguire la narrazione nelle due direzioni temporali contrapposte. Nel finale scopriamo lui nel momento dell'addio mentre lei nel percorso inverso narra il loro primo incontro. L'autore e compositore Jason Robert Brown (al suo attivo 11 Tony Awards per questo musical ma anche per gli altri sui lavori, Parade del 1999 e The bridges of Madison County del 2014) oltre alla brillante idea di formulare il racconto con questo doppio percorso agli antipodi, incanta lo spettatore con la piacevolezza e complessità di una partitura che non annoia mai neanche nei momenti più cupi del racconto. Il crescendo di lei dal triste al felice, antitetico a quello di lui dal felice al triste è trattato con un equilibrio perfetto in ogni momento della narrazione.
