Directed by Tony Award winner Bartlett Sher, To Kill a Mockingbird begins previews at the Shubert Theatre on November 1, 2018, ahead of an official opening on December 13.
Synopsis: "Based on an event that occurred near her hometown of Monroeville, Alabama in the 1930s, Harper Lee’s story of racial injustice and the destruction of childhood innocence centers on small-town lawyer and single father Atticus Finch (modeled after Lee’s father, attorney Amasa Lee), his young daughter Scout, her older brother Jem, and their mysterious neighbor, the reclusive Arthur 'Boo' Radley. Written during the early stages of the Civil Rights Movement - at a time when Jim Crow laws were still in effect in many Southernstates - Lee's novel held a mirror to the culture of racism of the Deep South."
The creative team behind To Kill a Mockingbird features original music by Adam Guettel, scenic design by Miriam Buether, costume design by Ann Roth, lighting design by Jennifer Tipton, and sound design by Scott Lehrer.
To Kill a Mockingbird is produced on Broadway by Scott Rudin, Barry Diller, and Lincoln Center Theater.
Jeff Daniels is best-known for his work on screen in movies such as "Terms of Endearment," "The Hours," "Steve Jobs," "Dumb and Dumber," and "The Martian." On Broadway, he received Tony Award nominations in 2016 for his role in the David Harrower play Blackbird, in which he starred opposite Michelle Williams, and in 2009 for God of Carnage.
