‘The Robin’ is full of beautiful stories, superb performances

One of the most popular characters in American literature, attorney Atticus Finch, starred in the famous actor Richard Thomas in Harper Lee’s Killing One Played at Playhouse Square on the national tour of To Kill a Mockingbird.

Thomas, 70, plays a small-town lawyer battling racial injustice in Maycomb, Alabama, in Aaron Sorkin’s stage adaptation of Harper Lee’s classic novel .

Thomas, best known as John Boy on the ’70s TV series “The Waltons,” received applause from the Playhouse Square audience when he entered as Atticus on Wednesday night. The last time he toured in Cleveland was on “Humans” in 2018.

In this beautiful work, which does both justice to the novel and fleshes out some of the key characters, the storytelling is engrossing and fast-paced. At the same time, it also allows the characters and the audience to breathe in moments that are both heavy and beautiful.
