Aaron Sorkin’s adaptation of Harper Lee’s To Kill A Mockingbird has been absolutely killing it at the box office (they keep breaking their OWN records – how insane!). The show just received 9 well-deserved Tony Award® nominations this past Tuesday, and one of those nominations went to our favorite Charles Baker “Dill” Harris, Gideon Glick! No stranger to the stage, he first made his Broadway debut in the original cast of the hit musical Spring Awakening, and went on to receive a Drama League Award Nomination for his role in the highly acclaimed Broadway play Significant Other. Taking a break from his amazing Tony nominated performance in To Kill A Mockingbird, we give you Gideon Glick On The Couch!
