The Curious Incident Of The Dog In The Night Time is one of the best plays we have EVER seen!!!
Wildly inventive in every which way, the new show on Broadway explores some powerful themes. The three which resonated the most with us are…
- The untapped potential within all of us
- Not to judge or underestimate others
- The ties that connect us ALL together
These themes were explored in so many fun and fresh ways, all while being incredibly deep, moving and powerful.
The play revolves around a dog's murder and a 15 year old autistic boy determined to play detective and find the culprit.
The Curious Incident Of The Dog In The Night Time is a drama, a comedy, a murder mystery and - most similarly - it moves and feels like a musical, even though it's a play.
If you liked War Horse, then you will like this show EVEN MORE!
Every single element is so inventive, from the superb writing and storytelling by Simon Stephens, to the illuminating and ever-changing set by Bunny Christie, which enhance the experience in infinite ways.
All this brilliantly put together by the director, Marianne Elliott, who cast a top-notch crew of actors that all delivered homeruns. However, in his Broadway debut, Alex Sharp, literally months out of acting school at Juilliard, gives a grand slam performance! The acting, the doing. He DID so much! He made it seem so effortless! Such a dynamic, real, beautiful performance!
Major hats off to everyone involved with The Curious Incident Of The Dog In The Night Time!!!
