The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time is heading across the pond but first it will resume its West End run! Directed by Marianne Elliot, the current West End version of the show will not be returning to the Apollo Theatre, as previously announced, where part of the venue's ceiling collapsed on the audience December 19 during a performance of the production. Instead it is set to start performances at the Gielgud Theatre beginning June 24. Opening night is scheduled for July 8.
The winner of seven Olivier Awards, the National Theatre's production of Simon Stephens’ new play will make its Broadway debut at the Barrymore Theatre in the fall of 2014. Casting for the Great White Way incarnation will begin shortly.
Adapted from Mark Haddon’s novel, The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time follows teenager Christopher who is exceptional at math while ill-equipped to interpret everyday life. When he falls under suspicion of killing Mrs. Shears' dog Wellington, he records each fact about the event in the book he is writing to solve the mystery of the murder. But his detective work, forbidden by his father, takes him on a journey that upturns his world.
