An exceptionally intelligent 15-year-old sets out to find who killed his neighbor’s dog, but discovers a great deal more about life in “The Curious Incident of the Dog In the Night-Time,” the Olivier Award-winning adaptation of Mark Haddon’s popular novel, which begins its Broadway run on September 10 at the Barrymore Theatre, in advance of an October 5 opening.
The play, which has been adapted by Simon Stephens, is directed by Tony Award winner Marianne Elliott, who was last represented on these shores by “War Horse.” At a meet-and-greet on July 25 at the New 42nd Street Studios, Theater Pizzazz spoke with Stephens and Elliott, along with cast members Alexander Sharp, who is making his Broadway debut as Christopher, Ian Barford, Helen Carey, Francesca Faridany, and Enid Graham.
Take a look at this sneak peek at what promises to be one of the fall’s hottest tickets.
