To Kill a Mockingbird

Closed on Oct. 27. Thanks for a sold-out run!
This stage adaptation of Harper Lee's classic novel is a beloved tale that still resonates today. It’s 1935, and racial tensions are high in Maycomb, Alabama. Nonetheless, young Jean Louise Finch — or Scout, as she is fondly called — manages to live a rather carefree existence, insulated from issues of race. All that changes when Scout watches her father defend an innocent man against a potential death sentence, which looms threateningly against him because of prejudice due to race. With the the help of her father, Scout learns that “growing up” often means doing what is right, even when it comes at great cost.

The Western Front, Christmas, 1914. Out of the violence a silence, then a song. A German soldier steps into No Man’s Land singing “Stille Nacht.” Thus begins an extraordinary night of camaraderie, music, peace. This acapella musical, based on a remarkable true story, is told in the words and songs of the men who lived it. Created by Peter Rothstein, it is an incredibly moving and beautiful piece of theatre.
