Parade at the London Theatre Workshop
A new production of Jason Robert Brown's 1998 musical Parade will run for a two week season at the London Theatre Workshop, a pub theatre above the Eel Brook Pub in Fulham, west London, from 1 to 13 September 2015.
Produced by the London Theatre Workshop, this will mark the show's first professional London staging since the acclaimed runs at the Donmar Warehouse and the Southwark Playhouse. The musical features music and lyrics by Jason Robert Brown and a book by Alfred Uhry.
The cast for the production will include Ross Barnes, Lily De-La-Haye, Daniel Holley, Kerry Loosemore, Brandon Force, Norton James, Dudley Rogers, Jennifer Webster, Jon Parry, Michael Moulton, Nazarene Williams, Samuel Clifford and Victoria Hope.
This new production will be directed by Jody Tranter with musical direction by Erika Gundesen and choreography by Adam Scown.
Acclaimed composer Jason Robert Brown's musical theatre credits include 'The Last Five Years", "Songs For a New World", and the recent Broadway musical "The Bridges of Madison County". His latest musical "Honeymoon in Vegas" ran at the Nederlander Theatre on Broadway last season. Book writer Alfred Uhry won an Academy Award for the screenplay of "Driving Miss Daisy".
Parade originally ran the Lincoln Center's Vivian Beaumont Theatre from 17 December 1998 to 28 February 1999. The first London production was directed by Rob Ashford and ran at the Donmar Warehouse in 2007 before transferring to the Mark Taper Forum in Los Angeles. The show was revived in London at the Southwark Playhouse in 2012 directed by Thom Southerland.
Tickets for the production are now on sale.
