This is a once-in-a-lifetime production. Rarely produced though loved by nearly all musical theatre aficionados, this Alfred Uhry and Jason Robert Brown production is considered a masterpiece of the modern musical. The show dramatizes the 1913 trial of Jewish factory manager Leo Frank, who was accused and convicted of raping and murdering a thirteen-year-old employee, Mary Phagan. This landmark musical is based on a true story but at its heart is the romantic story of Leo Frank and his wife Lucille, falling in love through the adversity of the situation. Rated PG-13
