Riveting, Relevant, Profound, Must see, Masterful

See it if everyone should see this-- full stop. It's one of the greatest musicals ever written and is more timely than ever.

Don't see it if you only enjoy musicals that are light-hearted/comedic.

CRITIC’S PICK: “What struck me even more vividly in this well-judged and timely revival is the quick path hysteria has always burned through the American spirit if fanned by media, politicians and prejudice of any kind. ”

“It’s a rare and thrilling gift when a musical presents a song that stirs up a legitimate lump in your throat. ’Parade,’ back in a banner revival, sees its stars Ben Platt and Micaela Diamond work that special magic twice with a pair of duets, one hopeful and one crushing. Memo: Bring tissues.”
