The Newsroom Emmy winner Jeff Daniels will reunite with Aaron Sorkin as he headlines the writer’s stage adaptation of Harper Lee's To Kill a Mockingbird. The Bartlett Sher-helmed production, a collaboration between producer Scott Rudin and Lincoln Center Theater, will begin performances November 1 at a theatre to be announced. Opening night is set for December 13.

Daniels, who takes on the role of Atticus Finch, returns to Broadway after a Tony-nominated turn in 2016’s Blackbird. Joining him are fellow Tony nominee Celia Keenan-Bolger (The Glass MenageriePeter and the Starcatcher) as Scout, Will Pullen (Sweat) as Jem, and Gideon Glick (Significant Other, Spring Awakening) as Dill. The casting of the three—each notably older than their respective characters—indicates Sorkin’s previously reported intentions to present the drama as a memory play.
