Just as the book is a masterpiece, this play is as well!! I wondered how the play could reach the depths of the novel, in such a short time, but it was PERFECT!! Everyone NEEDS to hear this message, yet not everyone wants to invest the time in reading this classic. We saw it in small theater in Omaha. It is wonderful for everyone in the family above 12, with the subject matter being a little harsh for anyone younger. Tell everyone you know, they NEED to see this show. It was very moving!.

I’ve been a season ticket holder at Shea’s for many years, and this is one of the finest productions I’ve seen. The adaption from the book was well-done, the acting flawless. The messages..and there are many..delivered at a time when we can all benefit from them, were well-delivered AND received. I don’t believe I’ve ever seen an ovation last as long as what was offered by the audience for this amazing cast. So glad I was able to take my 13 and 16 year old granddaughters, and I wish more local school districts would have offered to take students to Shea’s to see this show. If you have the chance to go, don’t let it slip by.

A CLASSIC FOR OUR TIMES
Thank you to the producers of this exceptional play! Fantastic performances. Harper Lee's story is relevant to our times. Fabulous performances.
Donna V. from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania
This play was outstanding. The acting was top notch and Richard Thomas as Atticus Finch was perfect as was all of the supporting actors/actresses. Broadway performances by all. The message is one that needs to be shared and heard as the struggle for minorities and people of color that still goes on today is recognized and acknowledged. As well as not all people are racist and there are people with kindness ,who recognize and strive to change that struggle and discrimination.

TO KILL A MOCKINGBIRD
The show was wonderful, the stage scenery sparse but had everything that was needed.Story went right into the court room and I loved that because that is what it really was about how, Tom Robinson was falsely accused and Atticus taking on his case to defend him. Scout, Jeb and Dill told the story. The entire cast were wonderful. If you loved the book, the movie you will enjoy the theatre performance. Enjoy!

FAV BOOK, MOVIE & SCREENPLAY WRITER - BUT NOT EXACTLY A HOMERUN
When asked what my favorite book & movie are, my answer has always been the same - TKAM. Add Alan Sorkin talent (West Wing is my favorite TV show) and it should have been a perfect storm. This production is not a staged version of the film as some people may expect, but is a fresh retelling of a classic. Most of the performances were great - especially Melanie Moore & Steven Lee Johnson as Scout & Dill. But beloved actor Richard Thomas just didn't have the gravitas on stage to capture the presense of a character such as Atticus Finch. He spoke way too fast for a southern man and didn't carry himself with the strength of Gregory Peck or my literary vision of the character. Having the actor who portrayed the screen version of Scout, Mary Badham, seen here in a supporting role was a thrill.
The play strays from the original content's seriousness. Albeit some very funny & timely lines were incorporated, it took away from the important issues raised. The inclusion of a deaf actor portraying a non-deaf character gladdened my heart especially during the recent successes of films & deaf actors receiving accolades.

FROM CAPE COD
What a wonderful novel but why was there not sound amplication for this production? The novel can be read in three hours but this play was bit too long.
