The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time will close Sept. 4, 2016. At that time, it will have played 800 performances, the most for a Best Play Tony winner since Proof in 2001.
That will leave prime play house the Barrymore available for something later in the fall season.
This was one of my favorite straight-play theatrical experiences ever, so I’m glad it had such success.
One of the most inventive pieces of theatre I’ve seen make it to Broadway. I hope its success will give producers confidence to get behind plays that are unique and of quality, rather than just searching for whatever play a “name” wants to do. I hope I get to see this again before it closes.
Im guessing the Barrymore already has a tenant lined up for the fall, hence the early announcement of the closing notice.
