Sound of Music & To Kill A Mockingbird Coming to Regent’s Park
It has been confirmed that a revival of The Sound of Music and an adaptation of Harper Lee’s To Kill A Mockingbird will open at the Open Air in Regent’s Park, next year.
The Sound of Music is also back on the stage! Its last West End run was back in 2006 when the winner of Andrew Lloyd Webber’s How Do You Solve A Problem Like Maria?, Connie Fisher took the lead role as Maria.
It will play from 25 July to 7 September 2013 at the Open Air.
To Kill A Mockingbird, the classic American novel has been newly adapted for the stage. The book is highly regarded as one of the best books in American writing. Its themes of racial inequality and rape meant that the book’s original reception was mixed, with some wanting the book banned. It is now thought to be one of the most widely read books in America that approaches the subject of race.
The production runs at the Open Air from 16 May to 15 June 2013.
