I started this blog with one daughter, kept it up with the other, to spend time together doing something we enjoyed.
However, things change and people evolve. My daughters are older, busier, and not as interested in writing.
From now on this blog will be mostly mom with occasional contributions from my daughters and maybe even my husband.
Nothing else will change. We'll still focus on sharing fun places to go, fun things to do, and more, and we would  still love to hear your views too

Great Reasons to See To Kill a Mockingbird on Broadway!

 As we wait for Broadway to fully reopen with many shows now scheduled to reopen as early as September, this is the ninth post in our series, Great Reason to See... focusing on different shows returning to Broadway or coming to Broadway soon.

Here are some great reasons to see To Kill a Mockingbird!

1) It's based on the classic novel which was voted the most beloved book in history as part of PBS' Great American Read.

2) Even though the basic story remains unchanged it is a completely new stage version of the show. 

3) This stage version of the show was written by Aaron Sorkin whose other works have included the multi-Emmy nominated TV series, The West Wing, and this year's multi-Oscar nominated film,  The Trial of the Chicago 7.

4) The show's cast upon reopening will include original cast members, Celia Keenan Bolger and Jeff Daniels. The former won a Tony for her role as Scout; the latter was Tony-nominated for his role as Atticus Finch.

5) The show's themes which include racism, classism, and sexism are extremely timely.

6) It's a great opportunity for students who have been required to read the book as part of their school curriculum to see the novel brought to life and perhaps gain a new appreciation for it.

7) It's a great show for families with older children.

And that's our view. To Kill A Mockingbird returns to Broadway on October 5, 2021. For more information or to purchase tickets, visit tokillamockingbirdbroadway.com.

  1. I really wish I could go see this on Broadway! We read it in middle school and I don't think kids currently in middle school are allowed to read it IN school anymore.

    1. I guess it depends where you live because I am pretty sure my daughter read it in school. Thanks for visiting Says Me Says Mom and your comment.
