Tickets are now available for The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time, a new play by Simon Stephens. The Broadway production will star Alexander Sharp in his Great White Way debut, alongside Ian Barford, Helen Carey, Francesca Faridany and Enid Graham. The Marianna Elliott-helmed production, which began at London’s National Theatre in 2012 and went on to transfer to the West End and win seven 2013 Olivier Awards, begins performances at Broadway’s Barrymore Theatre on September 10. Opening night is set for October 5.
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. The play is adapted from the novel by Mark Haddon.
Along with Sharp, Barford, Carey, Faridany and Graham, the cast will also include Jocelyn Bioh, Mercedes Herrero, Richard Hollis, Ben Horner and David Manis. Taylor Trensch will play Christopher at certain performances.
