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.

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.

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.

This ballet is a perennial entertainment, with more than enough theatrical detail to merit repeated viewings, more than enough layers of embedded history and emotional depth to fascinate again and again.

Such a joyful hoot. With its kinetic dancing, broad mugging and belty anthems, it makes you believe in musical comedy again.
