Jason Robert Brown and Alfred Uhry's Parade is back in NYC in a production serving as New York City Center's Annual Gala. Tony winner Ben Platt and Micaela Diamond lead the cast as Leo and Lucille Frank, respectively, in a run continuing through November 6. Michael Arden directs and Brown himself is at the podium conducting the orchestra. Watch Platt and Diamond sing "This is Not Over Yet" above and then get a further look at the production in the pics below.

Telling the true story of Leo Frank, a Jewish man who was wrongfully accused and convicted of murdering a 13-year-old girl in Atlanta, Georgia, in 1913, Parade features a score by Brown and a book by Uhry. The musical premiered on Broadway in 1998, receiving nine 1999 Tony nominations and winning two, for its book and score. In the years since, a major revision premiered at London's Donmar Warehouse in 2007, which later played Los Angeles' Mark Taper Forum in 2009. City Center's production is using the revisions from the work's London premiere.

The cast also features Jay Armstrong Johnson as Britt Craig, Stranger Things and Dear Evan Hansen star Gaten Matarazzo as Frankie Epps, and Alex Joseph Grayson as Jim Conley, alongside Florrie Bagel as Nurse, Stacie Bono as Nina Formby, Courtnee Carter as Angela, Max Chernin as Mr. Turner, Eddie Cooper as Newt Lee, John Dossett as Old Soldier/Judge Roan, Erin Rose Doyle as Mary Phagan, Manoel Felciano as Tom Watson, Brody Grant as Young Soldier, Danielle Lee Greaves as Minnie McKnight, Christopher Gurr as Mr. Peavy, Sean Allan Krill as Governor Slaton, Douglas Lyons as Riley, Erin Mackey as Mrs. Phagan, Ashlyn Maddox as Lila/Monteen, Sophia Manicone as Iola Stover, Howard McGillin as Luther Rosser, William Michals as Lt. Starnes, Paul Alexander Nolan as Hugh Dorsey, Sofie Poliakoff as Essie, Jackson Teeley as Officer Ivey, and Jennifer Laura Thompson as Sally Slaton.

Rounding out the company as understudies are Harry Bouvy, Tanner Callicutt, Anthony Chatmon II, and Caroline Fairweather.

Arden's creative team includes choreographer Cree Grant, music director Tom Murray, scenic designer Dane Laffrey, costume designer Susan Hilferty, lighting designer Heather Gilbert, sound designer Scott Lehrer, production designer Sven Ortel, and hair and wig designer Tom Watson. Kimberlee Wertz is music coordinator, and Cody Renard Richard serves as production stage manager.
