The Tony Award-winning musical Parade will get a new production, courtesy, of London's Donmar Warehouse. The show, directed by Rob Ashford, has a starting date of September 14. The cast is yet to be announced.

The musical has a book by Albert(The Robber Bridegroom) Uhry and a score by Jason Robert Brown. The show is based on the tragic story of Leo Frank, a Southern factory owner, accused of killing one of his workers. Mr. Ashford, a Tony Award winning choreographer, for Thoroughly Modern Millie, will be making his directing debut with Parade. The original production,directed by Hal Prince, opened at the Vivian Beaumont, in December, 1998 and closed in January 1999 (after 85 performances and 39 previews). It starred Carolee Carmello and Brent Carver.

Other shows scheduled to play the Donmar are Manuel Puig's Kiss of the Spider Woman, Harold Pinter's Betrayal and an evening of three one-act plays called Absurdia. The latter includes a new play by Michael Frayn and two pieces by N.F.Simpson.
