‘To Kill a Mockingbird’ is Returning to Broadway with Jeff Daniels & Original Casts
It is good news that one of the famous Broadway adaptations is returning this fall. Furthermore, Jeff Daniels and Celia Keenan-Bolger, who are original stars of TKAM, are returning.
Fans of To Kill a Mockingbird should be delighted as their favorite book will be adapted in Broadway production with their original stars. According to Producers, Daniels and Keenan-Bolger will play the role of Atticus Finch and his daughter, Scout. In fact, the show will start on 5 Oct. The show was closed because of the COVID pandemic and waves of calls for social justice.
In fact, “To Kill a Mockingbird,” written by Harper Lee, won a Pulitzer Prize in 1961. Since then, it is widely praised as a sensitive portrait of racial tension in 1930s Alabama. As Keenan-Bolger is the actress of To Kill a Mocking and Tony Award show winner, she is active in Black Lives Matter.
Concerning the incident, she commented,
“I think since I last performed the play, the story of our country has changed. And what a beautiful gift to be a part of something that is interested in continuing to go back and investigate the story of who are as a country and the story that we choose to believe about ourselves and the story that we need to change for ourselves.”
Additionally, the Broadway show is directed by Bartlett Sher. Similarly, Keenan-Bolger said she would leave the show if disgraced producer Scott Rudin were still the lead producer.
