Experience the magic of Harper Lee’s classic book, To Kill a Mockingbird, brought to the stage by the eminent director Bartlett Sher at the Shubert Theater.

Why Watch To Kill a Mockingbird
First published in 1960, Lee’s immortal book has won hearts for over five decades, never going out of print since its release. The play is filled with warmth and many comical moments, although it deals with heavy themes like racial inequality. The culture of racism in the ‘Deep South’ of the 1960’s is reflected perfectly by the play.
Atticus Finch, a widowed father, lives with his children Scout and Jem. The story is told from Scout’s perspective. They live in the quaint town of Maycomb in Alabama, a region suffering from the effects of the Great Depression in the 1930s. The story has a mystical and rustic vibe that is brought out beautifully through the eyes of a young country girl. When the racist white community of 1930s Maycomb accuses a black man named Tom Robinson of rape, Atticus Finch decides to defend the man in court. This leads to a series of disgusting and terrifying attacks on the accused and the family of the man defending the accused. Will Atticus find a way to get Tom acquitted?
