‘To Kill a Mockingbird’ will not return to Broadway

Kill a mockingbird will not reopen on Broadway. After performances interrupted from January, Kill a mockingbird has now confirmed that it will close on Broadway and no longer continue performances at the Belasco Theater.

In New York Times reports, Kill a mockingbird was due to resume performances at the Music Box Theater – which currently houses Dear Evan Hansen — from 2 November.

Kill a mockingbird opened at the Shubert Theater in November 2018 and became the highest-grossing American play in Broadway history. After the pandemic, Kill a mockingbird reopened at the Shubert on October 5, 2021. In January 2022, Kill a mockingbird announced a move from the Shubert to the Belasco Theater in June.

The final performance of Kill a mockingbird took place at the Shubert Theater on January 16, 2022.

Kill a mockingbird preserves the story of Harper Lee’s landmark 1960 book, in which the Finch family come face to face with the hatred of their Alabama neighbors when Atticus chooses to defend an innocent black man in court. Six-year-old Scout tells the story, linking her memories of courtship with other memories of her youth and her father as she loses her childhood innocence. Aaron Sorkin adapts Kill a mockingbird and Bartlett Sher directs.

In a Kill a mockingbird review on New York Theater Guide, our reviewer said: “[Aaron] Sorkin and its director Bartlett Sher cast it primarily as steamy courtroom drama, seamlessly blending it with scenes from Finch’s home life as his two worlds collide.”
