Amid religious intolerance, political injustice, and racial tension, the stirring Tony Award-winning explores the endurance of love and hope against all the odds. With a book by playwright Alfred Uhry ( ) and a score by Jason Robert Brown ( ), is a moving examination of the darkest corners of America's history.
Winner of the 2023 Tony Award for Best Revival of a Musical, which starred Ben Platt and Micaela Diamond.
In 1913, Leo Frank, a Brooklyn-raised Jewish man living in Georgia, is put on trial for the murder of thirteen-year-old Mary Phagan, a factory worker. Already guilty in the eyes of everyone around him, a sensationalist publisher and a janitor's false testimony seal Leo's fate. His only defenders are a governor with a conscience and, eventually, his assimilated Southern wife who finds the strength and love to become his greatest champion.
Daring, innovative, and bold, offers a moral lesson about the dangers of prejudice and ignorance that should not be forgotten.
