Tony Award-winning playwright Rupert Holmes' stage adaptation of A Time To Kill, based on John Grisham's best-selling novel, opened last night on Broadway at the John Golden Theatre (252 West 45th Street).

Sebastian Arcelus, Chike Johnson,Patrick Page, Tony Award winner Tonya Pinkins, Emmy Award winner Tom Skerritt, Fred Dalton Thompson, John Douglas Thompson, and Ashley Williams plus Jeffrey M. Bender, Dashiell Eaves,J.R. Horne, John Procaccino, Tijuana Ricks, and Lee Sellars will star. A Time To Kill is produced by Tony Award winnerDaryl Roth and Eva Price.

The show opened last night, October 20, and BroadwayWorld was there throughout the night to celebrate with the cast. Check out photos from the curtain call below!

A Time to Kill tells the emotionally charged, incendiary story of a young, idealistic lawyer, Jake Brigance, defending a black man, Carl Lee Hailey, for taking the law into his own hands following an unspeakable crime committed against his young daughter. Their small Mississippi town is thrown into upheaval, and Jake finds himself arguing against the formidable district attorney, Rufus Buckley, and under attack from both sides of a racially divided city. This thrilling courtroom drama remains as grippingly relevant today as it was when Grisham's story was first published in 1989.
