Christopher is suspected of killing a dog, one belonging to a neighbor. He sets out to clear his name and since he's a smart, smart boy, well, maybe he'll be able to do that. But his problems relating to other people — Mark Haddon's best-selling novel never specifies what — stand as a major sticking point in his quest.
The Tony Award-winning new play The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time, based on that novel, is just one of the offerings announced today in Broadway at the Hobby's new 2016-17 season, one that relies on established favorites to bring in the crowds as well as venturing forward with some of the most recent standout Broadway offerings.
Jersey Boys, winner of both Tony® and Grammy® awards, returns to start the season in November 2016. The Curious Incident follows in January 2017, and then the Tony Award®-winning revival of The King and I in March 2017.
Finding Neverland, the story behind the Peter Pan story, arrives in April 2017, and then the comedy Something Rotten! in June 2017. Set in 1595, it's the story of Nick and Nigel Bottom, who compete with Shakespeare among others and decide to write the first musical.
The Bodyguard (remember the movie version with Whitney Houston and Kevin Costner?) closes out the season in August 2017. Get ready to sing with this one "Saving All My Love," "I Wanna Dance With Somebody" and, of course, "I Will Always Love You."
Season extras include the return of The Book of Mormon in a limited run in January 2017 and Disney's The Lion King in a whopping four-week run in June 2017.
