Brianna Borger and Patrick Andrews sing from ‘Parade’ – Chicago Tribune

This week’s Showcase features a song from Writers Theatre’s production of the Alfred Uhry and Jason Robert Brown’s “Parade,” the 1998 musical based on the real-life trial and eventual lynching of Leo Frank, a Jewish factory manager accused of murdering a young employee in 1913 Georgia.

In the video, Patrick Andrews and Brianna Borger, who star as Leo and Lucille Frank, sing “All the Wasted Time.” The numbercomes late in the second act of the musical andtakes place in Leo’s cell during a visit from Lucille, marking a rare moment of hope and reconciliation for the couple.

In the Tribune review, Chris Jones called Gary Griffin’sproduction “an accomplished piece of direction that makes more of an overt statement about the work, rendering ‘Parade’ as a meditation on a new American moment.”

See “Parade” at Writers Theatre, 325 Tudor Court, Glencoe, through July 15.
