The Broadway premiere of Simon Stephens' Olivier Award-winning play The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time will now begin previews Sept. 10 at the Barrymore Theatre, producers announced May 14.

Originally announced to begin previews Sept. 15, the National Theatre production will now begin performances Sept. 10 towards an Oct. 5 Broadway opening.

Adapted from Mark Haddon's best-selling novel, The Curious Case of the Dog in the Night-Time is directed by Tony Award-winner Marianne Elliott (War Horse).

Casting has not been announced.



Here's how it's billed: "Fifteen-year old Christopher has an extraordinary brain; he is exceptionally intelligent but ill-equipped to interpret everyday life. When he falls under suspicion for killing his neighbor’s dog, he sets out to identify the true culprit, which leads to an earth-shattering discovery and a journey that will change his life forever."

The production is designed by Olivier Award winner Bunny Christie, with lighting by Tony Award winner Paule Constable, video design by Finn Ross, movement by Scott Graham and Olivier Award winner Steven Hoggett for Frantic Assembly, music by Adrian Sutton and sound by Ian Dickinson for Autograph.
