Play 'To Kill a Mockingbird' flies to Madison Square Garden

The hit Broadway play "To Kill a Mockingbird" is making the unusual step of switching venues for one night — to the cavernous Madison Square Garden.

In February, playwright Aaron Sorkin's adaptation of the novel will be performed in front of 18,000 public schoolchildren from New York City, marking the first time a Broadway play has been invited to the main Garden stage, the home of the New York Knicks and Rangers.

Nicknamed “The World’s Most Famous Arena,” the Garden has previously hosted concerts by members of the Beatles as well as boxing bouts between Joe Frazier and Muhammad Ali.
