The Tony Award-winning production of the National Theatre’s The Curious Incident Of The Dog Tn The Night-Time will close September 4. The production opened October 5, 2014 and will have played 800 performances at the Shubert Organization’s Barrymore Theatre. The longest-running play on Broadway in more than a decade, the show won five Tonys including Best Play. A U.S. national tour will launch in October 2016, the producers said Tuesday.
Written by Tony winner Simon Stephens, adapted from Mark Haddon’s bestselling novel and directed by Tony-winner Marianne Elliott, the production is designed by Tony winners Bunny Christie (sets), video designer Finn Ross, and Paule Constable (lighting).
An engaging and inventively staged story of a boy with uncommon mathematical gifts, curiosity and determination, The Curious Incident transferred to London’s West End, following a sold-out run at the National Theatre’s Cottesloe Theatre in 2012. The production received seven 2013 Olivier Awards, including Best New Play, and continues at the Gielgud Theatre in London.
