To Kill a Mockingbird also welcomes Tavia Rivée Jefferson as associate director and cultural coordinator, as well as Colette Luckie, People & Culture/Human Resources.
Orin Wolf was previously named executive producer of To Kill a Mockingbird. Wolf, succeeding Scott Rudin, is overseeing all aspects of the production.
To Kill a Mockingbird began performances November 1, 2018, at Broadway’s Shubert Theatre. On February 26, 2020—a few weeks before the Broadway shutdown—the Broadway cast gave a history-making free performance at Madison Square Garden in front of 18,000 New York City school children.
To Kill a Mockingbird will launch its national tour March 27, 2022, at Shea’s Performing Arts Center in Buffalo, New York, followed by the official tour opening April 5 at the Citizens Bank Opera House in Boston, starring Emmy winner Richard Thomas as Atticus Finch. Performances will begin in London’s West End at the Gielgud Theatre March 10, 2022, starring Rafe Spall.
Set in Alabama in 1934, Harper Lee’s enduring story of racial injustice and childhood innocence centers on small-town lawyer Atticus Finch, played by Daniels. The cast of characters includes Atticus’s daughter Scout, her brother Jem, their housekeeper and caretaker, Calpurnia, their visiting friend Dill, and a mysterious neighbor, the reclusive Arthur “Boo” Radley.
