To Kill a Mockingbird Earns 2 LCT Nominations

Panelists for the League of Cincinnati Theatres (LCT) have recognized Cincinnati Shakespeare Company’s  “To Kill a Mockingbird” with LCT nominations for lead actor (Bruce Cromer) and featured actress (Torie Wiggins) as well as distinguishing it as a recommended production.

In this adaptation of the beloved Harper Lee novel, set in a small town in Alabama in 1935, Scout and her brother Jem learn courage and compassion as their father, Atticus Finch, defends a young black man falsely accused of a crime.

Panelists praised Bruce Cromer’s portrayal of Atticus Finch as “sensational” and “strong enough to hold off the image of the iconic Gregory Peck.” Torie Wiggins as Calpurnia “did a great job of establishing her relationship with the children and her place as a black woman in the time period.” Overall, the panelists recommended the production as “terrific” and “worthy of coming out of your house, like Boo Radley”.

“To Kill a Mockingbird” continues through September 30th. Tickets can be purchased at

Final LCT awards will be determined at the end of the season and announced at the LCT gala in the spring.
