Curious Incident Stars Help Raise Funds for Young People Affected by Autism

News   Curious Incident Stars Help Raise Funds for Young People Affected by Autism
 
Alex Sharp and Francesca Faridany, the original stars of Broadway's The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-time, are featured in a new Indiegogo video campaign.

The two are helping to raise money on the crowdfunding website for special-ed teacher Janet Mino, who hopes to create a center where young adults on the autism spectrum can continue their growth and education after high school. She has named it The Valentine Center: The Center with a Heart.

Curious Incident, which continues at the Barrymore Theatre, concerns Christopher John Francis Boone, a socially awkward, mathematical savant who is written as though he fits somewhere on the autism spectrum (although it is never determined). Much like Mark Haddon's 2003 best-selling novel of the same name, he aims to uncover how the titular "Dog" was speared by a garden fork in the middle of the night. Tyler Lea recently succeeded Sharp as Christopher.
