Tony Award-winning composer-lyricist Jason Robert Brown is currently represented on Broadway with the revival of “Parade,” a story centered on Leo Frank’s trial for murder in Georgia. Meanwhile, Brown is at work on another musical, “Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil,” an adaptation of John Berendt’s true-crime book that is also centered on murder trials in Georgia.
