To Kill a Mockingbird Broadway
To kill a Mockingbird is a story by Harper Lee that was published in the year 1960. It was successful and won a Pulitzer Prize and is a significant part of the modern American Literature. Many believe that To Kill A Mockingbird is America’s crown jewel of novels.
The story itself is a plot with characters based on the observation of Harper Lee of her family and other people she interacted with, even if not on daily basis but at some point in the day or the week. The narrator is a six year old, Jean Louise Finch.
‘To kill a mockingbird’ is a renowned novel. It is widely known for its warmth and close to life feelings, humor and realness. It deals with issues like rape and racial equality.
The well known and widely loved novel is coming to Broadway, to be scheduled to open at the Shubert Theatre this year in December. It is adapted for stage by Aaron Sorkin and it may be performed for the first time on the 13 in the last month of 2018.

The production would be done by Scott Rudin and directed by Bartlett Sher. It had been adapted on stage before as well but the people involved in the production are commenting that the Broadway shows that are scheduled to start this winter are nothing like how ‘To kill a mockingbird’ is presented on stage and that this particular production would be very different from the prior shows.
Even though, the production is set to have an official opening on the 13th of December, 2018; previews for this Broadway would start at the Shubert Theatre on the 1st of November, so it is evident that the eager audience wouldn’t have to wait too long.

Lawsuit against the play
The estate of Harper Lee, who is the writer of the novel itself, claimed that the play was deviating too much from the original story line and that there was this need for the story to be as it was or even closer to how the story was written.
The lawsuit was nothing but the writer just wanting to see his original work get recreated as it is. While it shows dedication on his part, it's sort of pointless because not everything in the book can be put in the play as both are completely different forms of entertainment. But, still, Lee was somewhat winning the case and he would've gotten his wish. According to the lawsuit, Harper Lee could actually go through the script and make any changes that were necessary.
However, the case was cut short when Harper Lee died in the year 2016 and the estate was left to represent the case on her behalf. They did try but the estate didn't share the will of the writer. They just carried on what he was already doing, but sadly, there wasn't much to be done and there was not a lot that they could have done.
To Kill A Mockingbird sees the light
There were some accusations and issues draws over how the play was to be executed. Rudin offered to put up a performance for the court to see for itself that there was nothing wrong with the execution of the play. In the end, without having the terms of settlement cleared or publically announced, the litigation had been settled and there were no details of the settlement included in the documents of the court either.
The play is now set to be staged in November 2018, in New York. The tickets are being sold online and the bookings are being done as well.
It is unclear as to what the issues Harper Lee had with the play or on what basis were the production being sued but with Lee’s death, it was evident that sooner or later, the play was surely going to see the light of the day and it took almost a year or so for that to happen.
