Los Angeles (PTI) Nick Robinson is set to make his Broadway debut with “To Kill a Mockingbird”.
Best known for his work in “Melissa & Joey” and “Jurassic World”, the actor will play Jem Finch in Aaron Sorkin’s adaptation of Harper Lee’s classic novel.
Interestingly, Robinson played the same part in an earlier stage version of the novel at Seattle’s Intiman Theatre when he was 12.
The play also stars Ed Harris in the iconic role of Atticus Finch. He came on board after Jeff Daniels’ departure last November.
The production is directed by Tony Award winner Bartlett Sher and backed by Scott Rudin.
Both Harris and Robinson will begin performances with the remaining cast from November 5 at New York’s Shubert Theatre.
