Taryn Sacramone, the managing director of the Queens Theatre, remembers reading To Kill a Mockingbird for the first time in elementary school. She wasn’t alone: since it was published 55 years ago, Harper Lee’s book has become required reading for generations of American schoolchildren and has been translated into more than 40 languages.
This year, as race-related stories have captured America’s attention — from #BlackLivesMatter to the confederate flag coming down at South Carolina statehouse to the controversial release of Lee’s Go Set a Watchman — Sacramone thought it was time to bring the story of Atticus, Scout, Jem, and Boo Radley to her New York City stage.
“What the news is today is divisive. Theater — by literally drawing people into the same audience — is the opposite of that. It’s community building,” Sacramone said. “I think it can spark conversation in a different way.”
