UNDERWHELMED

The book is a cherished favorite. The film adaptation with Gregory Peck is a classic. The play I saw last night was simply disappointing. Richard Thomas as Atticus Finch was very good, as were some of the supporting cast including Yaegel Welch (Tom Robinson), Richard Poe (Judge Taylor), and Steven Lee Johnson (Dill Harris). However, Melanie Moore (as Scout and the principle narrator), whose performance was otherwise laudable, has apparently never been to Alabama or the south, and her inconsistent attempts at a southern accent was far more Brooklyn than 'Bama. Most disappointing were the organization of the jumping back and forth in time rather than presenting the story linearly, and the decision to make the racial bigotry message far more heavy-handed than the subtlety used so effectively in both the book and the movie. I went hoping for so much more, but came away quite underwhelmed.

ALL FEELING LOST IN COMEDY, NO WARMTH.

My husband and I adore this classic and we were thrilled to be apart of this experience. We both were curious how the current times would handle this heavy subject. Sadly, with humor and leaving many keys relationships and roles out. The movie was able to translate the literature into lightheartedness and handled the gravity of the subject realisticly. We felt this production made a mockery of it. The children were so important in the telling of the story and they had so much depth. What we saw here, they were used as punchlines. Atticus, has a quiet wisdom and warmth and we felt it was very much lacking. We did love the costumes and the sets were beautiful. There were molments to enjoy, but overall, it was mostly mowed over and the core was ripped out. We left disappointed. Would not recommend if you truly love the book or movie.

TO KILL A MOCKINGBIRD WITH A BAD ACCENT

Omg. The accent was SO BAD that it was impossible to understand many of the lines. I do not know where Scout was from, but it certainly was NOT Alabama.

TO KILL A MOCKINGBIRD - A COMEDY

Why would they think the decision to make this a comedy was a good one? The nonstop punchline and actual slapstick humor were so out of place and outright inappropriate. They added extremely racist dialog that wasn't from the book for no reason other than shock value. The accents were horrible and completely inconsistent. I left during intermission because I couldn't stomach one more second of this staged disaster.

TERRIBLE

The southern accents were terrible!!! The accent attempt by Melanie Moore (Scout) was like hearing a New Englander mocking a southern accent. She also couldn’t keep the same accent throughout the play which became very distracting. The sets were moved too often. The better scenes were when the set stayed still and Moore didn’t speak.

BORING AND DIDN'T FOLLOW THE MOVIE

I thought they play was very slow and was not very interesting. They also changed a lot of things from the movie which I did not think was good. Boring to me. If you like the movie don't see the play.

LONG AND PAINFUL

The comic attempts were unnecessary and ridiculous.
