Broadway Show: Parade with Alfred Uhry
Alfred Uhry

What is a favorite memory from this season?

Parade was picketed by a group of Neo Nazis on the night of our first preview. One of them was holding up a hateful hand painted sign, which, ironically, resembled a prop in the show.

That was outside. Inside the company was taking a curtain call. The audience just wouldn’t let them leave the stage, so they just stood there while the cheering and shouting went on and on.

I will never forget that contrast.
