Aaron Sorkin brings Harper Lee's masterpiece to the Broadway stage starring Jeff Daniels and Celia Keenan-Bolger!

Why See To Kill a Mockingbird?

Jeff Daniels returns to Broadway!

First Published in 1960, Harper Lee's revered masterpiece To Kill a Mockingbird comes to the Broadway stage for the first time. Taking on the unenviable task of adapting such an iconic book is Oscar winner Aaron Sorkin (The Social Network, The West Wing), while Tony Award winner Barlett Sher (The King and I, Fiddler on the Roof) directs. Jeff Daniels, last seen on Broadway in the acclaimed drama Blackbird, returns to the stage to star as lawyer Atticus Finch. He'll be joined by Celia Keenan-Bolger and Kinky Boots' Stark Sands.

A portrait of simmering racial tension in a small southern town, To Kill a Mockingbird is considered one of the greatest American novels ever written. In today's current climate, its themes of prejudice and inequality seem just as prescient, while the book's steadfast lawyer Atticus Finch remains the gold-standard for noble heroes.


While adapting such a story is a daunting task, Sorkin has promised not to be too overly reverent, and will be adding in new dialogue and fleshing out some scenes which were only passingly mentioned in the text. Producer Scott Rudin has also assured fans that Mockingbird's controversial follow-up Go Set a Watchman, which cast a wholly different light on Atticus Finch, is not being looked to for inspiration.

What is To Kill A Mockingbird About?

Told through the eyes of 13 year old Scout, Mockingbird is set in the pre-civil rights era Deep South of the 1930s. When local black man Tom Robinson is accused of raping a white girl, Scout's lawyer father Atticus Finch takes on the case, determined to try and give Tom a fair trial. With his decision to defend Tom, Atticus finds himself ostracised from the community, and the lives of his family put into danger. As the trial approaches, Atticus must choose whether to buckle under the mounting pressure or to stand his ground, and fight for what is right.

As a portrait of a displaced man unraveling, Mr. Cranston's wrenching performance stands on its own. In context, it's a terrifying reminder of how an all-too-human, anger-filled public figure, with access to a worldwide stage, can be mistaken for a god.

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