New Play, Broadway
The 2015 Tony Award winner for Best Play is a stirring performance that transports the audience into the visceral, chaotic and distinct mindset of 15-year old Christopher who would be dubbed in diagnostic terms as a high-functioning autistic teenager. Fresh from London's National Theatre, The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-time is playing in an open run at the Ethyl Barrymore Theatre (243 West 47th Street); tickets $27-139.
