Catch the Tony Award-win­ning play at the Kennedy Cen­ter. Also: an in­ter­na­tional horse show and a drag queen race

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.
