Aaron Sorkin’s stage adaptation of To Kill a Mockingbird will play its final performance at Broadway’s Shubert Theatre January 16, but a Broadway return is already set. The work will reopen at Broadway’s Belasco Theatre beginning June 1, with current star Greg Kinnear returning to the role of Atticus Finch.
Directed by Bartlett Sher, the adaptation of Harper Lee’s novel officially opened December 13, 2018. The production recouped its original investment in 19 weeks after opening.
Tony nominee Jeff Daniels (Sorkin’s The Newsroom) originally took on the central role of Atticus Finch in the staging, which frames the Alabama-set story as a memory play as Scout recalls the 1930s trial in which her father defended a Black man accused of raping a white girl. Celia Keenan-Bolger won a Tony Award creating the role of Scout on Broadway. Read opening night reviews here.
