John Grisham

John Grisham‘s inaugural novel, A Time to Kill, will spring from bookshelves to the big stage this autumn. The renowned and celebrated author’s work already made it to the big screen in 1996 with a mega-watt cast, starring Matthew McConaughey, Sandra Bullock and Samuel L. Jackson, but will expand even further.

Tony Award-winning playright Rupert Holmes, writer of The Mystery of Edwin Drood and Curtains, will create musical magic once again with Grisham’s 600-plus page-turner. 2011’s interpretation at Washington’s Arena Stage featured Sebastian Arcelus as McConaughey’s character. Ethan McSweeny, who directed the Washington version, will once again deliver for Manhattan’s Broadway rendition.

The enthralling Mississippi-based story chronicles a white lawyer who defends a black father, guilty of killing his daughter’s rapist. The adaptation, with a currently unannounced cast, will commence this fall at the John Golden Theatre.
