Your showtune for March 11 is

“This is Not Over Yet” – Parade

Music and Lyrics: Jason Robert Brown

In this musical based on a true story, Jewish factory manager Leo Frank is accused of the rape and murder of a young girl and put on trial in 1913.  When the case is reopened after a guilty verdict, Leo and his wife sing this stirring song, relishing in the fact that it is not over yet.  Sadly, the innocent man was hung by a lynch mob shortly after, but it truly wasn’t over as Leo Frank was officially pardoned on this day in 1986.
