The play was first produced by Royal National Theatre in London, and that same production (adapted from Mark Haddon's 2003 novel by Simon Stephens and directed by Marianne Elliot), albeit with a new cast, transferred to Broadway where it ran for two years and won five Tony Awards, and is now on tour. It feels very British in terms of the accents and references, which only makes it more charming to us Americans.

The clever adaptation, the sound, lighting, video, and set design, the movement, and the wonderful performances by the ensemble all combine for some unique and effective storytelling. The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time continues through this weekend only at the Orpheum Theatre; check it out for the rare opportunity to see a Broadway play on tour, and a uniquely special one at that.
