Published in 1960, Harper Lee’s debut novel To Kill a Mockingbird
was an immediate and astonishing success. Now, for the first time ever, Harper Lee’s open-hearted dissection of justice and tolerance in the American South will be brought vividly to life on the Broadway stage. Inspired by Harper Lee’s own childhood in Alabama, the play deals with racial tensions in a small southern town. The character of Atticus Finch, based on Lee’s father, is one of literature’s symbols of honesty and righteousness. The character of Scout, based on Lee herself, has come to define youthful innocence—and its unavoidable loss. See Lee’s candid dissection of justice and tolerance in the American South come to life on the Broadway stage. Curtain: 7:00pm. Orchestra seating.
