To Kill a Mockingbird Details
One of most beloved novels in American history is now vividly reimagined onto the Broadway stage in Aaron Sorkin’s adaptation of To Kill A Mockingbird. This dynamic stage production about the fight for justice and tolerance in the American South features powerhouse performances by a cast of seasoned stage and screen actors, and was the recipient of multiple Tony Award nominations. One of the hottest tickets on Broadway, Mockingbird has been hailed by theater critics as “a great work of American theater.”
To Kill a Mockingbird on Broadway is based on the 1960 Pulitzer Prize-winning novel by Harper Lee. Lee created one of the most recognizable characters of American literature in Atticus Finch, now brought to life in a first-class production featuring a bold script by award-winning screenwriter Aaron Sorkin. Sorkin switches up the structure of the book slightly by focusing on the intense courtroom drama from the beginning. Atticus Finch, the widowed lawyer asked to take on a controversial case of a black man accused of rape, has become a symbol of integrity and compassion since the book’s publication. The play premiered on Broadway first starring actor Jeff Daniels, known for Aaron Sorkin’s acclaimed HBO television series ‘The Newsroom’ among other projects. The production is directed by Tony award-winning director Bartlett Sher who previously won awards directing Broadway musicals South Pacific, My Fair Lady, and Fiddler on the Roof.
This is the first time To Kill A Mockingbird has been presented on Broadway and to audiences in New York City.
The Shubert Theatre was opened in 1913 by producers Lee and J.J. Shubert and is officially named the Sam S. Shubert theatre after their brother.

The theater also has been home to the Tony Awards over the years and holds the Shubert Organization’s corporate offices built above the theater.
