    Grisham’s Tale Retold Onstage

    Charles Isherwood

    October 20, 2013: The ceiling fans keep twirling away up there on the stage of the John Golden Theater on Broadway, as if to dispel all the heat and tension gathering in the courtroom where much of “A Time to Kill,” a stage adaptation of the John Grisham novel, takes place. But the producers might have saved a little on the electricity bill.

    A Time to Kill

    Thom Geier

    October 20, 2013: Broadway seldom goes in for courtroom dramas anymore, a genre that has remained a staple of primetime TV through endless iterations of the Law & Order franchise. So the producers of A Time to Kill didn't take any chances, choosing to adapt a 1989 best-seller by John Grisham. Better yet for name recognition, the source material also yielded a hit 1996 movie starring Matthew McConaughey and Sandra Bullock as young defense lawyers drawn into a racially charged murder case in a small Mississippi town. The producers even drafted Law & Order alum Fred Dalton Thompson, now chrome-domed, to play the judge. All that's missing is the sonic cha-ching between scenes.

    Review: "A Time to Kill" Gets Laughed Out of Court

    Robert Kahn

    October 20, 2013: Hey, did you hear the one about the 10-year-old African-American girl who was raped and left for dead in the Deep South? No? That’s because John Grisham’s 1988 best-seller “A Time to Kill” is a mortifying story about the loss of childhood innocence, race relations, murder and justice.
