‘To Kill a Mockingbird’
Emmy award-winning actor Richard Thomas stars as Atticus Finch in the American Theatre Guild production of Aaron Sorkin’s “To Kill a Mockingbird” through Sunday, Nov. 19, at the Birmingham-Jefferson Convention Complex (BJCC). Based on Harper Lee’s classic novel, the production includes Birmingham native Mary Badham as Mrs. Henry Dubose. At age 10, Badham received an Academy Award nomination for best supporting actress in the 1962 film version for playing Jean Louise “Scout” Finch. The production contains racially explicit language and costuming, references of sexual abuse and brief gunfire audio. Tickets available through broadwayinbirmingham.com, ticketmaster.com and the BJCC ticket office.
