WHAT A SHOW A MUST SEE.....

The play was delightful, funny in spots and dead serious in others. The Paramount theater in Seattle was a great backdrop for the play. Richard Thomas as Atticus Finch was outstanding and the actress that played Scout was just awesome. The play is timeless and is just as powerful today as 50 years ago. Very well done indeed.

VENUE NOT SO GOOD

The Paramount needs to do something about its noisy filtration/air conditioning system. The mechanical noise (sounded like cars on an overpass) coming from the rear of house left made it impossible to hear more than about 80% of the dialogue. We were in the middle front of the second mezzanine and others noted this as well.

OUTSTANDING EVENING!

Outstanding evening! Richard Thomas did not disappoint – excellent performance, mastered the role. His ensemble cast also was there with excellent portrayals of their characters. There were some surprising laughable moments that one would not expect in “to kill a mockingbird“. A shout out to all the cast crew and production. The evening was well spent. If you have a chance to see this play I highly highly recommend it.

TO KILL A MOCKINGBIRD

I saw the 12/2/2022 performance at the San Diego Civic Theatre. When I was around 9 at 2am I went into my sisters room she wasn't there and turned on her black and white TV and saw the original movie starring Gregory Peck as Attiscus Finch, I knew I was watching something incredibly special. I suspect that original B&W movie couldn't capture the full book (on my reading list), and the broadway production couldn't capture the full B&W movie .. that said, on a scale of 1-10, the performance rates a 10. On a scale of 1-10 Melanie Moore's portrayal Scout rates 1000 and captures the essence of the child actor Mary Badham's playing Scout in the original B&W movie. Interesting the B&W movie there are child actors, on Broadway they are adult actors playing kids. Gregory Peck in the original B&W is such a better Atticus IMHO, still Richard Thomas' performance of Atticus is outstanding but many times effeminate which Gregory Peck never was, Richard he does get tough when its called for. Overall I rate the play a 10, what a great production.

REALLY GREAT; REALLY FUN.

Great show, Scout and her bothers steal the show. Funny at times and the dramatic parts were gripping. Wish it was in town longer.

TEAM EFFORT WINS!

This play is so well acted. And it allows your imagination to flow. Respectfully done with a tender understanding. Dealing with a dark disturbing and serious plot line, the producers were able to add genuine humor to the telling of the story. No actor upstages the next. You feel the family kinship in the group! I absolutely loved this play! Left me feeling empathy and sadness for my forefathers and hope that we have matured since the story took place. Richard Thomas and Melanie Moore are superb! The theater is magnificent and of course the crowd and staff were exercising proper behavior. Such a grand experience! I Highly recommend this play..

A TIMELY LESSON…

I traveled 170 miles to see this and was not disappointed. The scenery is simple but relates to the times and focus of the plays heart and soul, the message and lessons of racism. The direct character to audience narrative is amazing and inclusive. The characters are engrossed with one another, then turn and draws you to the characters in a way not experienced by the standard recital process of a play. It astounds you with hard language, then comforts with easy conversation but all is intertwined with aptly timed raw and poignant humor. It whispers to our vocal innocence and naivety, then yells at our withdrawn arrogance and pride. It’s soul searching and reminds us of issues we are uncomfortable about but allows the audience to reflect on what’s happening on stage. Fabulously entertaining production.
