Celia Keenan-Bolger & Gideon Glick On Playing Kids In To Kill A Mockingbird


10 days away from the Tony Awards, To Kill A Mockingbird's Tony nominated actors, Celia Keenan-Bolger and Gideon Glick, "Scout Finch" and "Dill Harris" respectively, stopped by the Lite FM studio to chat with Cubby and Christine about the play that's taking Broadway by storm.

If you have ever read To Kill A Mockingbird or seen the movie, you know that Scout and Dill are children while Celia Keenan-Bolger and Gideon Glick are clearly adults. The pair revealed how they found themselves playing the beloved characters, as adults, and how the audience reacts to their characters;

"What I find remarkable, I get very nervous when when there's a lot of kids because they know we're not kids, I find when I see when I see them at the stage door that they go that's exactly what I thought Dill and Scout were gonna be like that's exactly what I thought Jem was like... I'm like this 30 year old and this 40 year old!? It's that's crazy to me that the magic of theatre kind of supersedes all of that so they can just abandon what what they think and just kind of go with the show it's really extraordinary."

Later, the duo talks Tony Award excitement and costumes they wear during the production. Watch the full interview above!
