The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time follows a 15 year-old kid named Christopher John Francis Boone who has an exceptional brain, but difficulty fitting into the expected parameters of society.

The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time on Broadway Background

Based on the 2003 British mystery novel of the same name, The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time is a play adapted by the very prominent British playwright Simon Stephens. Directed by Marianne Elliott, the play premiered at London’s National Theatre in 2013, winning the most Olivier Awards (the British equivalent of the Tony’s) of any show throughout history: seven, including Best Play. The play will transfer to Broadway without any major Hollywood stars, relying on the high quality of the writing and the production to make this show a success.

What’s The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time Like?

A self-proclaimed Sherlock Holmes, Christopher encounters many challenges on his search for the truth, ultimately unearthing a stupefying fact that will forever change his life. Not only is the story deeply human and engaging, but the production also has gorgeous design on all fronts. Bunny Christie and Paule Constable team up to make the stage an unusual and interesting platform using LED lights both on the deck and walls to portray the way Christopher's mind works in contrast to the people around him.

Is The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time Good for Kids?

Due to a certain degree of strong language and some mature themes, this show is best suited for children over the age of 10. As-per-usual, at most Broadway theatres, children under the age of 4 are not permitted inside the theatre.
