The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time Comes to Los Angeles
The North American tour of Simon Stephens's Tony-winning drama will soon stop at the Ahmanson Theatre.
Los Angeles will soon be the next stop in the North American tour of The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time. Presented by Center Theatre Group, the National Theatre production of Simon Stephens's Tony Award-winning drama will begin performances at the Ahmanson Theatre on August 2 and continue through September 10. Opening night is set for August 3.
Adapted from Mark Haddon's novel, the story follows 15-year-old Christopher, who is exceptionally intelligent but ill-equipped to interpret everyday life. When he falls under suspicion of killing his neighbor's dog, he sets out on a journey to identify the true culprit.
Directed by Tony winner Marianne Elliott, the play began preview performances on September 20, 2014, and opened on October 5, 2014, at the Ethel Barrymore Theater, where it ended its run on September 4, 2016. The drama came to Broadway following a sold-out run at London's National Theatre in 2012 and a subsequent West End transfer.
The cast includes Adam Langdon as Christopher, Gene Gillette (War Horse) as Ed, Felicity Jones Latta (Metamorphoses) as Judy, Maria Elena Ramirez (Fish in the Dark) as Siobhan, and Amelia White (The Heiress) as Mrs. Alexander. The ensemble includes Brian Robert Burns (War Horse), Francesca Choy-Kee (Disgraced), Josephine Hall (Les Liaisons Dangereuses), John Hemphill (School of Rock), Robyn Kerr (Dark Vanilla Jungle), Kathy McCafferty (Dada Woof, Papa Hot), J. Paul Nicholas (Blood and Gifts), Geoffrey Wade (Translations), and Tim Wright (Curious Incident on Broadway). Benjamin Wheelwright will play Christopher at certain performances.
The production is designed by Tony winner Bunny Christie and Tony-winning video designer Finn Ross, with lighting by Tony winner Paule Constable, choreography by Scott Graham and Olivier Award winner Steven Hoggett for Frantic Assembly, music by Adrian Sutton, sound by Ian Dickinson for Autograph, and hair and wig design by David Brian Brown.
