‘The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time’ Coming to Broadway

The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time, Simon Stephens’ stage adaptation of Mark Haddon’s best-selling novel, will open on Broadway at the Ethel Barrymore Theatre in the fall of 2014. Directed by Tony winner Marianne Elliott (War Horse), the play transferred to London’s West End after a hit run at the Royal National Theatre in 2012 and winning seven Olivier Awards, including Best Play. Elliott will direct this production, which will feature an American cast.

The story focuses on Christopher, a 15-year-old math genius who has problems with daily social interaction. When he is suspected of killing a neighbor’s dog, he launches an investigation which takes him on a frightening, life-changing journey. The Independent raved, “This is a profoundly moving play about adolescence, fractured families, mathematics, colours and lights.”

The London production was temporarily halted when the roof of the Apollo Theatre collapsed on Dec. 19, 2013 during an evening performance, injuring several patrons. The play will re-open in London at the Gielgud Theatre on June 24.

Complete casting and dates for the U.S. production are to be announced.
