Acclaimed director Gary Griffin, who directed the original Broadway production of composer Jason Robert Brown’s Honeymoon in Vegas and the world premiere of his The Trumpet of the Swan at the Kennedy Center, stages an intimate revival of this celebrated musical. With a book by playwright Alfred Uhry (Driving Miss Daisy) and a score by Brown (The Last Five Years,The Bridges of Madison County) that combines folk, rock, R&B and gospel, Parade ends WT’s 25th Anniversary Season with spectacular impact.
For adventurous theatregoers who want to be part of the action, Writers Theatre is offering a limited number of special on-stage seats for every performance of Parade. This exclusive vantage point provides audience members an immersive experience of Parade, as the area will be near the orchestra and will also be used by actors during the performance. Some restrictions apply, visit writerstheatre.org/parade-on-stage for details.
