Top Tickets: To Kill A Mockingbird
Interest in the stage version of Harper Lee’s timeless classic was bound to be high anyway, but with the release of Go Set a Watchman (the recently discovered “new” novel by Lee) and all its attendant publicity, the author is suddenly on everyone’s mind. The timing couldn’t be better for the Guthrie. Set in Depression-era Alabama, the stage version of To Kill a Mockingbird is a faithful and moving amalgamation of both the book and movie. Recent events in Ferguson and elsewhere have made the story’s theme of racial injustice depressingly relevant.
