First Broadway Production of TKAM Opens This Week
Stars Jeff Daniels as Atticus Finch
A lawsuit by the estate of Alabama native Harper Lee and a counter-suit by producer Aaron Sorkin were settled earlier this year, clearing the way for the production, which opens on Thursday.
From the 60 Minutes interview with Daniels:
Jeff Daniels: “I wish I could’ve told that 21-year-old kid back in 1976, “It’s going to happen for you. But you’re going to be in your 60s. And you should probably read Harper Lee’s “Kill a Mockingbird.” I’m not going to tell you when but someday.”
Steve Kroft: Is this the highest profile role you’ve ever had?
Jeff Daniels: By far. Well, excluding “Dumb and Dumber.” (LAUGH)
