POOR ADAPTATION

I am a big fan of Aaron Sorkin, but was extremely disappointed in this production of To Kill a Mockingbird. I've never walked out on a theatre production, but I came very close on this one. My question is this: when did this literary classic become a comedy? At times I felt like I was watching a TV sitcom. The added humor into this deeply moving and important story was not necessary and made many of the characters into buffoons. The way the story was told was also clunky and confusing going back and forth from the trial. The sets were also not impressive with too many parts moving around the stage. I know folks like to offer a fresh take on Broadway shows, but this was in my opinion disrespectful to the source material and embarrassing to watch.

MOCKINGBIRD WAS KILLED BY THIS FIASCO

If you loved the book or the movie, you'll hate this adaptation by Sorkin. It's terrible! Racism is NOT funny, and yet he felt compelled to interject lame jokes throughout the play. The acting, except for Richard Thomas (the only saving grace on stage), was stiff and the rushed dialogue was difficult to hear. It seemed more like narration than actual character interaction. I cannot understand the casting of adults to play the parts of children, and they looked and acted ridiculous. Sorkin has made a point of saying that he wants his black characters to have meatier roles, and yet in this catastrophe of a production they have barely any stage presence, and usually just sit there silently. Such hypocrisy! We went hoping to see a production similar to the book or the movie- something that grabs your emotions and tells a heartbreaking story of injustice, but what we saw was a complete farce. It was a waste of money buying tickets to see this... thing. The best part of it for us was that we walked out when we couldn't take it anymore.

TO KILL A STORY

Went to see this show in Atlanta Georgia tonight. Heartbroken over the portrayal of Atticus and also the use of humor for such a deep topic. It was if the playright was trying to condition the audience to find humor in such deep topics. Didn’t like that adults played parts of children, too mature loss of the innocence which were a part of the book. Very poorly done.
