It's time for another visit with Midday theater critic, J. Wynn Rousuck, who joins Tom each week with her reviews of Maryland's regional stage.

Today she tells us about Tuesday's opening night performance of To Kill A Mockingbird, at Baltimore's Hippodrome Theater.

The touring company production is Aaron Sorkin's acclaimed stage adaptation of Harper Lee's Pulitizer Prize-winning novel about racial justice in the Jim Crow South. It's directed by Tony Award-winner Bartlett Sher, and stars Richard Thomas in the role of attorney Atticus Finch, who works to defend a Black man who has been wrongfully accused of raping a White woman.

To Kill A Mockingbird continues at The Hippodrome through March 19. Click the theater links for ticketing and showtime information.
