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.
