Special Event: Experience Parade with Broadway Outings for Women
April 19 @ 11:45 am – 2:00 pm
We found a few more spots! Grab them while you can. If the box above says SOLD OUT, then they are gone. Click here if you’d like to add your name to the waitlist.
Join us at Bond 45 for a 3 course all inclusive lunch in a room full of amazing women who share a love and appreciation for the performing arts. Lunch will begin and 11:45am.
At the luncheon our panel will be discussing the social, political and economic climate in the American south in the early 20th century, the environment for Blacks, women and Jews, the events that led a mob to lynch Leo Frank in 1915, and the legacy of that event today.
In addition, we will hear about the making of the current revival of Parade and how the cast and creative team managed the challenging topics in the show. Finally, we will examine the role of women in the story, and how the idea of “preserving womanhood” played a role in the events in the play.

About the Show:
The acclaimed, sold-out New York City Center production of Parade starring Tony, Grammy and Emmy Award winner Ben Platt is moving to Broadway in the can’t-miss show of the year. The New York Times hails it as a Critic’s Pick and “the best-sung musical in many a New York season. It recalls an era of big casts, big stories and big talent — a time when musicals actually felt like events.”
Lucille and Leo Frank, a Jewish couple in Marietta, Georgia in 1913, are just beginning to build their newlywed life together. When Leo is accused of an unspeakable crime, it propels them into an unimaginable test of faith, humanity, justice and devotion. Riveting and gloriously hopeful, and remarkably based on a true story, Parade reminds us that to find love, we must truly see one another.
Show Ticket Price: $190
The ticket price includes our favorable group ticket pricing of $149 plus a $41 service fee.

Broadway Outings for Women (BOW) creates opportunities to enhance our experience and enjoyment of the best shows on Broadway. As with most art, we believe that appreciation improves with context and knowledge. BOW events focus on the contributions of women to Broadway productions and dive into the often under-represented female perspective in the Broadway theatre.
Outings include conversations with artists and experts who provide insight, context, and inspiration about the production and encourage participants to deepen their connection to the material. Conducted in an intimate setting, we encourage community-building, a feeling of belonging, and most of all, joy. Come and be a part of this experience!
BOW was created by Broadway producer Lori Fineman of FineWomen Productions. This event is the first of what we hope are many collaborations between BOW and Grab Your Group & GO!.
The Lunch & Learn will be at Bond 45, 221 W 46th St, New York, NY 10036. Following our lunch we will walk to the Bernard B Jacobs Theatre to view our show.
THE FINE PRINT
REFUNDS: Please note ALL SALES ARE FINAL. We understand that sometimes a change of plans is an inevitable fact of life. Should a situation arise with your purchased tickets we are here for you, so please reach out. We have amassed a unique situation where it is possible that a buyer within this large group may be unearthed. Providing solutions and matching tickets to people is gratifying, but also time consuming. As such, WE WILL DEDUCT $20 PER TICKET if exchanges are confirmed.
If you find yourself unable to attend on the day of the show, we are happy to find lucky recipients for your tickets if you can no longer use them and want to gift them to a good home. Please notify us as soon as possible as we will make every effort to avoid empty seats in the theater.
Let’s also remember the much unsung feature of broadway, the privilege of past dating. You can read about it HERE.
FEES: A service fee is included in the price of each ticket as organizing these events is not an insignificant allocation of time and resources – though we do love most every minute of our time spent masterminding evenings at the theater. The service fee varies from show to show based on cost, demand and our efforts to secure the tickets.
