OCT. 5-23: “The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time”
Last year this critically acclaimed drama won five Tony Awards, including best play. Now it takes the Opera House stage at the Kennedy Center (page 35). Adapted by Simon Stephens from Mark Haddon’s best-selling novel, the story—presented as a play within a play—centers on 15-year-old Christopher, who’s a math genius but struggles with an autism-related condition. Visual and sound effects help bring the audience into his exceptional mind, as he happens upon a mystery, turns Sherlock-style sleuth and embarks on a difficult but transformative journey.
