Jeff Daniels as Atticus Finch in To Kill a Mockingbird on Broadway
Producers Scott Rudin, Barry Diller and Sonia Friedman Productions have announced that Bartlett Sher‘s Tony Award nominated production of ‘To Kill a Mockingbird‘, Aaron Sorkin’s acclaimed new play based on Harper Lee’s Pulitzer Prize-winning novel, will open at London’s Gielgud Theatre in May 2020, coinciding with the 60th anniversary of the novel’s publication.
To Kill a Mockingbird is celebrating one year on Broadway today and holds the benchmark of having become the most successful American play in Broadway history, having not played to an empty seat.
Set in Alabama in 1934, To Kill a Mockingbird centres on one of the most venerated characters in American literature, the small-town lawyer Atticus Finch. The cast of characters includes Atticus’s daughter Scout, her brother Jem, their housekeeper and caretaker Calpurnia, their visiting friend Dill, a mysterious neighbour the reclusive Arthur “Boo” Radley, and the other indelible residents of Maycomb, Alabama.
To Kill a Mockingbird is designed by Miriam Buether, with costumes by Ann Roth, lighting by Jennifer Tipton, sound by Scott Lehrer and an original score by Adam Guettel.
The British cast and performance dates will be announced soon.
