"To Kill A Mockingbird" first show announced for Denver Center's 2020-21 Broadway and Theatre Company schedules.

Denver Center for Performing Arts (DCPA) announced last week that To Kill A Mockingbird, the new play by Aaron Sorkin and starring Emmy-award winner Richard Thomas, will play in Denver as part of the 2020-2021 Broadway and Theatre Company full subscription packages.

Any remaining 2020-21 Broadway shows will be announced on March 9, while Theatre Company titles will be announced on February 21.

The play is based on the 1960 novel by Harper Lee and is directed by Tony winner Bartlett Sher. The adaptation of the classic novel tells a story of “honor, childhood adventure, and racial hatred in 1930s Alabama” as described in Playbill. The play holds the honor of most successful American play in Broadway history; since its start in November 2018, the play has played to a full house, with no empty seats.

Set to run at DCPA’s Elle Caulkins Opera House from July 13 through August 1, 2021, public ticket sales have not been announced yet; we will let you know when they are! The play will go on a national tour kicking off in August this year at the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts in Washington, D.C., and will open in May 2020 at London’s Gielgud Theatre.

DCPA’s subscription memberships offer benefits that ensure the best seats in the house as priority access to some performances, such as To Kill a Mockingbird, free and flexible ticket exchanges, discounts and more. Additionally, all 2019/2020 DCPA subscribers are eligible for priority access to Hamilton tickets.

To Kill a Mockingbird is sure to be a hit here in Denver, and we will be on the lookout for tickets as soon as they go on sale. Are you hoping to get your hands on some? Have you read To Kill a Mockingbird? Give us the scoop in the comments.
