Broadways Mockingbird Play To Go Ahead After Dispute Settled


– The producer of a Broadway adaptation of Harper Lee’s “To Kill a Mockingbird” and the author’s estate have settled a legal dispute over the Aaron Sorkin-penned script, which will allow the production to go head on schedule.

In a joint statement on Thursday, the production company Rudinplay and Lee’s estate said they had “amicably settled ongoing litigation” following a court battle over the estate’s objections that Oscar-winner Sorkin’s script deviated too much from the 1960 novel about race relations in Depression-era U.S. South.

Terms of the settlement were not disclosed.
