Aaron Sorkin’s ‘To Kill a Mockingbird’ Going on Tour

Academy Award Winner Aaron Sorkin’s version of To Kill A Mockingbird has garnered a lot of attention, both good and bad. And now, many will get to see his version live.

Scott Rudin, producer of the show, confirmed that the Broadway show is going on tour this summer. Starting with a debut show at the Eisenhower Theater at the Kennedy Center on August 20th, the show will run there for six weeks before branching out to other cities in the coming months.

Rarely does a Broadway show that is not a musical garner as much attention as To Kill A Mockingbird. When asked about the reception for the show, Sorkin said it was surprising:

 

“The critical response, the size of the whole thing. But most important to me is the way it is landing with audiences.”

 

This is one of the many Broadway shows that will be debuting at the Kennedy Center during the 2019-2020 season including Cats, My Fair Lady, and Hamilton. You can read more about the shows here.

 

Casting for the tour are in development.
