Thank you for this information! I had no idea.
Here's a clip of Ben Platt and Micaela Diamond (who played Leo Frank's wife Lucille) performing "This Is Not Over Yet" from PARADE.


This was an excellent production, and I'm glad I saw it. I do find it humorous, however, when the promo video has more elaborate sets than the actual production!
Yes, it looks like the promo video was shot at a rehearsal space.

Here's a performance by Ben Platt and Micaela Diamond on the TODAY with sets that more closely match what was used in the actual production of PARADE.

The sweetie and I saw Micaela Diamond in the pre-Broadway run of THE CHER SHOW in Chicago.
She played one of the three Chers, the teenage girl who met Sonny Bono.

Coming up on June 4 is The Velvet Touch, which is somewhat like All About Eve as a film noir. Rosalind Russell plays the famous actress. Theater life isn't always pleasant, and a murder ensues.

Is The Velvet Touch a TCM premiere? It is an RKO film and thus was part of the former Turner library of films.

The film has a good supporting cast with iconic noir actress Claire Trevor and just getting started Martha Hyer, as well as Warner Bro vets in Sydney Greenstreet and Frank McHugh.

The review aggregator Rotten Tomatoes reported that 66% of critics have given the film a positive review based on 29 reviews, with an average rating of 6.4/10. The site's critics consensus reads, "The Mission is a well-meaning epic given delicate heft by its sumptuous visuals and a standout score by Ennio Morricone, but its staid presentation never stirs an emotional investment in its characters."[13] On Metacritic, the film has a weighted average score of 55 out of 100 based on 18 critic reviews, indicating "mixed or average reviews"....

The Mexican movies they showed were nothing special. It was the exact same dialogue except remade with different actors in Spanish.

I'm pretty sure it's been shown before, but not often. Looks like it's a Roz birthday tribute today.

Director
Richard Marquand

Cast
Donald Sutherland, Kate Nelligan

"Roger Ebert "admired the movie" and stated that it "resembles nothing so much as one of those downbeat, plodding, quietly horrifying, and sometimes grimly funny war movies that used to be made by the British film industry, back when there was a British film industry."[2]

George Lucas was impressed by the film and hired director Richard Marquand to helm 1983’s Return of the Jedi. On Rotten Tomatoes, 85% out of 20 critics gave the film positive reviews. ...

Early this morning TCM also showed the premiere of Code Name: Emerald (1985) with Ed Harris and Max von Sydow, a rare film to see on cable.

https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0088934/

(The theme on TCM today is the 80th anniversary of D-Day, so they are showing films related to World War II all day.)

It is now available on WatchTCM if you missed it - TCM has a very nice print of the film.

The number of premieres on TCM this month is off the charts.

Fascinating! Oh my gosh -- Leo Frank sings "I'm at the end of my rope"

He surely was.
