Based on Harper Lee's classic novel of the same name, To Kill a Mockingbird takes place during the Great Depression in the fictional town of Maycomb, Alabama. The powerful story focuses on a young girl, Scout, and her lawyer father Atticus. Atticus is appointed to defend a black man accused of raping a young white woman. The trial is controversial and revealing of profound racial discrimination in the small southern town.

To Kill a Mockingbird on Broadway Background

Academy Award winner Aaron Sorkin (The Social Network, "The West Wing") adapts Harper Lee's iconic novel for the Broadway stage for the first time. There have been stage adaptations of Mockingbird in the past, but none made it as far as Broadway. As Harper's debut novel, To Kill a Mockingbird received unprecedented acclaim when it was released in 1960. Lee won the Pulitzer Prize and the American classic has sold more than 40 million copies worldwide. To Kill a Mockingbird was found to be the second most influential book in people's lives by the Library of Congress, second only to the Bible. The Academy Award winning film of the same name was released in 1962 and went on to significant critical acclaim, despite a lack of awards. The movie has subsequently been referred to as "culturally, historically, or aesthetically significant".[

Jeff Daniels who starred in Sorkin's "The Newsroom" plays Atticus Finch. This production is directed by Tony Award winner Bartlett Sher (South Pacific, The King and I). Despite a lawsuit from Ms. Lee's estate over the portrayal of a less-than-admirable Atticus Finch in the stage adaption, the show proceeded as scheduled.

What’s To Kill a Mockingbird Like?

To Kill a Mockingbird was inspired by Harper Lee's childhood in Alabama. Her father was a lawyer who represented two black men accused of murder and when she was ten years old a white women accused a black man of raping her in a nearby town. As in the play, the trial was controversial and unjust. The play explores issues of racial injustice, historical prejudice and class. As Scout watches the trial and learns of the racial intolerance deeply rooted in the South at this time, the audience watches Scout gradually lose her innocence. This story is beloved not only for its themes, but its characters. Atticus is an impartial model for lawyers and has served as a moral compass for generations. Scout resonates with audiences for her universal childhood innocence and curiosity.

Is To Kill a Mockingbird Good for Kids?
