This was my first time visiting "Mockingbird" since I played Dill in Centerstage North's production back in '93. Just like with GET's last show, I caught this one front row center (the people who made reservations ahead of time got worse seats than I did as a walk-in). I admired this production a lot, and liked how it wasn't too heavy on casting all the Georgia Ensemble "regulars." While I enjoy the familiar faces, it was nice to know the theatre doesn't appear to show favoritism. There were some projection problems (even from the front row) with a few actors' voices, but nothing too major. The 3 kids were okay, but not great, with the standout being the actor playing Jem.

As Atticus, the reliable gem that is Mark Kincaid put a nice spin on the role which fit very well. Even the Southern accent wasn't annoying, and his two monologues in the courtroom sequence were superbly delivered. The highlight of this show was the last 20 minutes. The climax gave me chills, and the lighting and staging were very appropriate for the mood.

I believe it's a sin (much like killing a mockingbird) that this theatre's shows don't run longer. [POST A COMMENT REGARDING THIS REVIEW]
