Parade's Broadway transfer wins over the critics
Kitty March 20th, 2023
Now open at the Bernard B. Jacobs Theatre, Ben Platt and Micaela Diamond win high praise for their turns in this highly anticipated revival of Jason Robert Brown's 1998 musical
Superlatives abound in the critics' reviews of the Broadway revival of Jason Robert Brown's dramatic musical telling the true life-inspired story of a factory owner accused of a crime under a cloud of antisemitism and prejudice. Starring Ben Platt and Michaela Diamond, it looks as if Parade is the must-see of the season.
"Resonant beautifully performed Broadway revival...The Broadway transfer of the first major New York revival for the 1998 musical features luminous turns from Ben Platt and Micaela Diamond." "It's remarkable that Parade feels as dynamic and moving as it does. That's in large part thanks to Brown's Tony-winning score and orchestrations music director and conductor Tom Murray's version is lush and chill-inducing from the jump and a top-to-bottom slate of excellent vocal performances, particularly from leads Ben Platt and Micaela Diamond."
The New York Times
"A Pageant of Love and Antisemitism, in Parade...Ben Platt and Micaela Diamond star in a timely and gorgeously sung Broadway revival of the 1998 musical about the Leo Frank case...In the riveting Broadway revival of the musical "Parade" that opened on Thursday at the Bernard B. Jacobs Theater, it's Micaela Diamond, as Lucille Frank, you watch most closely and who breaks your heart. With no affectation whatsoever, and a voice directly wired to her emotions, she makes Lucille our way into a story we might rather turn away from."
"Ben Platt & Micaela Diamond Lead Exceptional March Through History...With a cast as fine as it is large, led by Ben Platt and Micaela Diamond two of the best singers currently on Broadway Parade, set in 1913 Georgia, scores its topical points with all the artistry and theatrical know-how to meet and exceed its noble intensions. Parade is as commanding as any musical revival to hit Broadway in years For his part, Platt has no trouble reminding us just why he's become one of Broadway's most beloved performers. His vocals here are stunning, soaring high and sinking low in a remarkably flexible, pitch-perfect and bell-toned performance, modulated for every emotional nuance of a score that strikes notes of vaudeville, pop balladry and musical theater showstopper."
