Aaron Sorkin’s new play, directed by Bartlett Sher, and based on Harper Lee’s classic novel. TO KILL A MOCKINGBIRD began previews on Thursday, November 1 and opened on Thursday, December 13, 2018 at the Shubert Theatre (225 West 44 Street).
Set in Alabama in the 1930s, Harper Lee’s enduring story of racial injustice and childhood innocence centers on one of the most beloved and admired characters in American literature, the small-town lawyer Atticus Finch (Jeff Daniels). The cast of characters includes Atticus’s daughter Scout (Celia Keenan-Bolger), her brother Jem (Nick Robinson), their visiting friend Dill (Taylor Trensch), and their mysterious neighbor, the reclusive Arthur “Boo” Radley (Russell Harvard). The other indelible residents of Maycomb, Alabama will be brought to life on stage by Neal Huff (as Bob Ewell), Kyle Scatliffe (playing Tom Robinson), Manoel Felciano (as prosecutor Horace Gilmer), Dakin Matthews (playing Judge Taylor), Eliza Scanlen (as Mayella Ewell), and Lisagay Hamilton (as Calpurnia).
