To Kill a Mockingbird Announces Rush Policy
Aaron Sorkin's adaptation of Harper Lee's novel begins performances tomorrow.
To Kill a Mockingbird has announced a rush ticket policy. Starting with its first preview tomorrow, a limited number of balcony seats will be sold as rush tickets, priced at $29. Rush tickets will be limited to two per person and will only be available at the Shubert Theatre box office beginning at 10am on the day of the performance.
Written during the early stages of the civil rights movement — at a time when Jim Crow laws were still in effect in many Southern states — and first published in 1960, To Kill a Mockingbird held up a mirror to the ingrained culture of racism in the Deep South. Lee's debut novel earned immediate acclaim, winning the Pulitzer Prize for fiction and getting published in 10 languages within a year of its release. To Kill a Mockingbird is now considered one of the classics of modern American literature, with 50 million copies in print to date.
Directed by Bartlett Sher, the production will open on Thursday, December 13, at the Shubert Theatre.
Jeff Daniels heads the cast as Atticus Finch, alongside Celia Keenan-Bolger (Scout), Will Pullen (Jem), Gideon Glick (Dill), Danny Wolohan (Arthur "Boo" Radley), Frederick Weller (Bob Ewell), Gbenga Akinnagbe (Tom Robinson), Stark Sands (Horace Gilmer), Dakin Matthews (Judge Taylor), Erin Wilhelmi (Mayella Ewell), LaTanya Richardson Jackson (Calpurnia), Neal Huff, Danny McCarthy, Phyllis Somerville, and Liv Rooth.
