On September 15, the National Theatre production of The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time welcomed new cast members to Broadway's Barrymore Theatre. The company now stars Tyler Lea, who replaces Tony Award winner Alex Sharp in the role of Christopher, with Rosie Benton as Siobhan, Andrew Long as Ed, Nancy Robinette as Mrs. Alexander, and Benjamin Wheelwright as Christopher at certain performances.

Adapted by Simon Stephens from Mark Haddon's best-selling novel, and directed by Tony Award winner Marianne Elliott, The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time tells the story of 15-year-old Christopher, who is exceptionally intelligent but ill-equipped to interpret everyday life. When he falls under suspicion for killing his neighbor's dog, he sets out on a journey to identify the true culprit.

The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time, directed by Tony Award winner Marianne Elliott, is currently running at Broadway's Barrymore Theatre.
