To Kill a Mockingbird is Aaron Sorkin's adaptation of Harper Lee's classic American novel. The lawyer Atticus Finch, who has become a symbol of morality and heroism, represents an innocent Black man in a sensationalized criminal trial, and his decision to do so draws him and his family ire from the residents of Maycomb, Alabama. The New York Theatre Guide review of To Kill a Mockingbird reads, "Sorkin and his director Bartlett Sher stage it primarily as a scorching courtroom drama, folding it seamlessly with scenes from Finch's home life as his two worlds collide."
The production opened to acclaim in December 2018, earning nine Tony Award nominations and one win for Keenan-Bolger in her role as Scout. It is set to reopen October 5 at the Shubert Theatre.
To Kill a Mockingbird tickets will be available soon.
