Customer Reviews for To Kill A Mockingbird
I was thinking the movie was so intense, how was it going to be on stage? Richard Thomas was great, as so was the whole cast. I liked the way they did put a little humor into it. I was very glad I went to see it. It did send the same message I got from the original movie.
A must see
Whether or not youâ€™ve read the book, or saw the movie, this stage production of TKAM is a superior theatrical production you donâ€™t want to miss. Every role is perfectly cast. The stage changes from a courthouse to the porch of a southern household are creative. However the twirling door panels could certainly be eliminated with no loss of subject. Being as long as it is ( almost 3 hours ), it easily could be a 3 Act Play with 2 intermissions. The message is powerful and carries no less meaning that when the book was first published. Spend your theater dollars wiselyâ€¦get your ticket to this one!
This is an amazing production. I wondered if I could separate Richard Thomas from â€œJohn Boy.â€ But it was a non-issue - from the very beginning he doesnâ€™t just play Atticus Finch, he IS Atticus Finch. He does a fabulous job but guess what? He doesnâ€™t steal the show because everyone else is equally as good! OMG! Every role is fully developed, totally convincing and pitch perfect. Treat yourself to the best theatre has to offer! Iâ€™m hoping to see it again!
Excellent production. Richard Thomas portrays Atticus Finch like a boss! The play is well casted, Melanie Moore has incredible energy and Jacqueline Williams was amazing. This was a real treat, I highly recommend going.
The production, cast and venue are engaging in a beautiful theater. Bravo! Well done & story telling at its best!
Fascinating adaptation of an American Classic
The Peace Center is as good as any Broadway theater that I've ever seen. Aaron Sorkin's adaptation of To Kill A Mockingbird is extremely well done and reminds us that this great American novel is as poignant today as it was 60yrs ago. The acting is outstanding and Richard Thomas is a phenomenal Atticus Finch. The play is more than 2.5 hours long but worth every minute. Don't miss it!!!Â¡!!
