LONDON’S SOLD OUT HIT COMES TO BROADWAY
Winner of 7 Olivier Awards including Best New Play, THE CURIOUS INCIDENT OF THE DOG IN THE NIGHT-TIME brings Mark Haddon's international best-selling novel to thrilling life in a dazzling adaptation by two-time Olivier Award winner Simon Stephens. Tony Award® winner Marianne Elliott (War Horse) directs.
Fifteen-year-old Christopher has an extraordinary brain; he is exceptionally intelligent but ill-equipped to interpret everyday life. When he falls under suspicion for killing his neighbor’s dog, he sets out to identify the true culprit, which leads to an earth-shattering discovery and a journey that will change his life forever.
Called “thrilling,” “exhilarating” and “inspired” by Ben Brantley of The New York Times, THE CURIOUS INCIDENT OF THE DOG IN THE NIGHT-TIME is a record-breaking phenomenon that simply must not be missed.
Juilliard graduate Alexander Sharp will make his Broadway debut in the lead role of Christopher Boone. He will be joined by Ian Barford as Ed, Helen Carey as Mrs. Alexander, Francesca Faridany as Siobhan and Enid Graham as Judy.
As Alex Sharp, 25, was preparing to graduate from the Juilliard School in May, he steeled himself for the life of a struggling actor, making distressed-wood coffee tables with plumber’s-pipe legs to sell on Craigslist.
Believe the buzz. The National Theater Production of “The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time” is spectacular, like Cirque du Soleil with brains.
