Part of Hancher's Broadway Series

All rise for Academy Award winner Aaron Sorkin’s adaptation of Harper Lee’s Pulitzer Prize-winning masterwork. The New York Times Critic’s Pick TO KILL A MOCKINGBIRD is “the most successful American play in Broadway history” (60 Minutes). Rolling Stone gives it 5 stars, calling it “an emotionally shattering landmark production of an American classic,” and New York Magazine calls it “a real phenomenon. Majestic and incandescent, it’s filled with breath and nuance and soul.” With direction by Tony Award winner Bartlett Sher, TO KILL A MOCKINGBIRD—“the greatest novel of all time” (Chicago Tribune)—has quickly become “one of the greatest plays in history” (NPR).

Please note: This play includes strong language, subject matter regarding race relations, and recorded gun shots.

The Saturday matinee will include ASL interpretation.

To Kill a Mockingbird
The Gazette - Saturday, January 20, 2024
“To Kill a Mockingbird” is a masterpiece in any era, in any medium. Aaron Sorkin’s 2018 stage adaptation is a profound indictment of hatred and prejudice, and Tony-winning director Bartlett Sher brilliantly directs that toward the audience, using the youngest player to intone: “All rise.” So many meanings out of two simple words.
