Great acting, Great staging, Great writing, Relevant, Resonant

See it if you’re wondering how this classic text could possibly be relevant to today’s political climate. This is a thoughtful, profound production.

Don’t see it if you’re a purest who feels that Harper Lee’s text should not be altered in any way. Sorkin takes his liberties, but honors the text.

“you've got to be taught to hate and fear/ you've got to be taught from year to year/ it's got to be drummed in your dear little ear/ you've got to be carefully taught”

See it if All Broadway plays should live up to this example!!! A beloved classic perfectly adapted for the stage.

Don’t see it if I read the book so long ago, so I cannot debate how I would feel if the story was fresher in my memory. Just go!!

What to Watch For

  • Before she died, To Kill a Mockingbird novelist Harper Lee agreed to having Aaron Sorkin draft a revised script of To Kill a Mockingbird for the stage. That's a great honor, as Lee famously disliked having adaptations made of her work and never went to see them.
  • In the new script, Atticus Finch experiences a gradual moral evolution. According to Aaron Sorkin, “As far as Atticus and his virtue goes, this is a different take on Mockingbird than Harper Lee’s or [1962 film screenwriter] Horton Foote’s."
  • Novelist Harper Lee based the character of Atticus Finch on her own father, A.C. Lee, who worked as a lawyer and defended two African American men accused of murder.
  • The To Kill a Mockingbird book was previously adapted as a play by Christopher Sergel. His show debuted in 1990 in Lee’s hometown of Monroeville, Alabama and still plays there annually. Sorkin's adaptation marks the first time Lee’s story is brought to life on Broadway.
  • Children under the age of 4 are not permitted in the theatre.
