Tony Award winner Ben Platt (Dear Evan Hansen) stars as Jewish factory manager Leo Frank, whose 1913 trial, conviction, legal appeal, and eventual lynching inspired Jason Robert Brown and Alfred Uhry’s Tony-winning musical. Director Michael Arden (Once on This Island, Deaf West’s Spring Awakening) leads this true-crime-inspired production, which also features rising star Micaela Diamond (The Cher Show) as Frank’s young wife Lucille, an assimilated Southern Jewish woman who becomes her husband’s most vocal crusader.
