My favorite Broadway play of all time, The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time, comes to the Arsht Center for the Performing Arts from today until Sunday, February 3. Simon Stephens’ Tony Award-winning adaptation of Mark Haddon’s internationally best-selling novel, comes to thrilling life onstage as fifteen-year-old Christopher has an extraordinary brain; he is exceptionally intelligent but not well equipped to deal with 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 that will change his life. This play is so good, I promise you won’t even blink! For tickets, which are $50, go to ArshtCenter.org.
