AS A BLACK PERSON, I WAS OFFENDED

We had to walk out during intermission. As a lover of this book and movie, I feel that this play was a parody of this classic story. The audience was laughing during moments where it should have been serious. I felt offended as a black person and my mother is 66. She went through a time period of being the only black going to a white school for the first time, being called names, etc. She was also offended. I did not enjoy this show. This is just my opinion on it. I did think the characters who played Bob and his daughter did well. But I do feel a mockery was made out of this.

ATTICUS FINCH TURNED ACTIVIST?

Atticus Finch being shown a better way, where he learns that some people are terrible to the core and not to bother looking for any decency ... which is literally the opposite of the original story and intent if the author. Shameful adaptation in so many ways. Production had some qualities, but it was hard to hear dialogue (I'm 46 and not hard of hearing) as well as some Medicare performances. Overall, a favorite book was besmirched in this rediculous and rather apostate variant. Instead of good and evil, we had evil and lesser evil on full display.

POOR BALANCE OF (TOO MUCH) COMEDY VS. IMPORTANT STORY

While the movie does an amazing job addressing such an important social topic, I felt like the play turned a serious story into near slapstick. There was a moment of hope with the courtroom scene where the daughter testified. This scene was intense and excellent. No stupid humor in this scene. I'm all for comic relief, but not when the balance is not there and when the stupid lines overpower the important parts of the story. They did keep the racism and did not tone this down, which was important. They kept the use of the N word, which is important for this story. But when you add in all the slapstick, then the use of the N word starts to feel inappropriate, because it becomes part of humor instead of part of the message. This story is so powerful and so important. Why in the world mess it up and replace the powerful story with mindless ha ha moments? This is one where it is better to watch the movie and/or read the book.

SORKIN RUINS ATTICUS

How is it okay to alter the work of Harper Lee, and change the one of the most revered figures in modern literature into a buffoon in the service of fighting racism? Instead of a delicate hammer Sorkin’s work is now a sledge. To those unfamiliar with his work, it is well acted and has a topical progressive message about racism. To anyone who knows Lee’s masterpiece, however, it is a travesty.

WORSE THAN A HIGH SCHOOL PRODUCTION;; EXCRUCIATING!

We walked out of the play before intermission. First the acoustics at Fair Park are horrible and it’s very hard to hear the dialogue, especially when they deliver the dialogue so quickly, in poor southern accents, and with no artistic depth. Seems like the direction cue was to “shout and strut”. Not sure why the director thought it was wise to make this powerful piece of American fiction into a comedy. Seems like the entire cast was mugging for cheap, one-liner laughs. It was just excruciating. Richard Thomas was horrible. The actress who played Scout was horrible. Truly one of the worst performances that I have seen in my life — and that includes high school productions.

I SAW THIS IN SAN DIEGO

It is a complete distortion of the original novel. A travesty. Abrasive at times and it complete distorts Atticus, taking him from one of most heroic figures in literature to rather a buffoon.

TIRED OF POLITICS AND PLATFORMS

I quit buying season tickets to the Minneapolis plays/productions. I’m tired of wonderful books and plays being rewritten to suit an agenda and characters having their “moments to lecture”. Leave that classic book alone as it was written! You did the same things to Jesus CHRIST Superstar. Omgsh! I walked out of both. No, I will not recommend this to anyone - this was so beneath Richard Thomas .
