It was also announced that Orin Wolf has been named Executive Producer of To Kill A Mockingbird, effective immediately. Mr. Wolf will oversee all aspects of the production.

In a statement, Aaron Sorkin said, “We’ve been waiting more than a year for Mockingbird — and all of Broadway — to come back, so this is a very happy announcement. I’m looking forward to the re-launch of the play under Orin Wolf’s leadership and I’m excited for the electricity that Jeff, Celia, and the whole cast will be bringing to the Shubert Theatre. Mostly I’m looking forward to being back in our rehearsal room.”

Mr. Daniels added, “Over the course of the original year-long run, I felt a nightly privilege playing Atticus Finch. At this moment in our country’s history, I’m honored to play him again, to inhabit an iconic American Hero who still speaks to our times and will help us all remember who we can be.”

Set in Alabama in 1934, Harper Lee’s enduring story of racial injustice and childhood innocence centers on one of the most venerated characters in American literature, the small-town lawyer Atticus Finch, played by Daniels. The cast of characters includes Atticus’s daughter Scout, her brother Jem, their housekeeper and caretaker, Calpurnia, their visiting friend Dill, and a mysterious neighbor, the reclusive Arthur “Boo” Radley.
