One of the best places I have ever seen - no surprise with a dynamic duo of Aaron Sorkin and Jeff Daniels. Time flew by. Amazing and relevant and well played by literally EVERY cast member. Run to this.

4.0 star rating Steve S from Seattle, WA


Jem is too old in present and reflection. He seemed mid20’s on both times. His reflection back to the pre-teen events should have been more adolescent, particularly the voice and tenor when arguing with Atticus a breaking voice or costume change would help. Scout managed to do both roles and was Great!!

4.0 star rating Ella from New York, New York


I thoroughly enjoyed this. Solid cast, with Scout anchoring the entire production. Unlike some others, I liked Sorkin’s “take” and “tweaks,” and actually (while some may find this blasphemous) thought Jeff Daniels was better Atticus than Gregory Peck. I usually enjoy musicals way more than dramas, but highly recommend this one, particularly with this cast (note: Bob Ewall was played by an understudy).

It was o.k. It just didn't grab me emotionally. Maybe I am still in high school (in my mind) reading the book for the first time. Jeff Daniels was excellent but I found the casting of the "kids" with adults to be disconcerting and I never got over it.

2.0 star rating Jeff Illig from Grand Rspids, Michigan


Saw this on Broadway. Thought Jeff Damien’s was ok. Thought the the kids were candy too old. Scout is supposed to be 13. The adult actress playing her was just that, an adult pretending to be a youngster. Story was ok, but didn’t elicit empathy for the characters. Felt like a production still in the rehearsal stage.

1.0 star rating Suzanne Ally from New York, New York


If you are a fan of To Kill A Mockingbird, book and/or movie as I am you too will be sorely disappointed. The book's timeline was altered as was the story. The set was bare and moved between scenes by the actors. The roles were miscast and poorly executed. I left at intermission.

1.0 star rating M. Blitz from New York, New York


A “reunderstanding” of a story should bring new insight. Sorkin’s rewrite doesn’t. Miscasting for: Bob Ewell (looks younger than his daughter; Sounds too educated and articulate). Scout (shrill; overacts, brings nothing new to the character other than looking way too old). Dill (Terrible acting, plays part for shallow laughs, dimishes complexities of the character). Jem (dull as dirt, no complexity at all). Atticus (incredibly, Jeff Daniels is terrible in this role. Plays lines for laughs, no subtlety, not a single genuine note of the quality of affection he felt for his children, monotonous). Calpurnia (plays part for laughs, reflects none of the subtle threshhold that Cal had to straddle). —- Guitarist strumming in front was a major distraction & made no sense.. Same for keyboardist. Show was really about there set, the way the set and props were moved in and out. As for Sorkin’s “reimagining” of Lee’s story, he didn’t. It felt like a grade-school book report made into a silly play.
