Joan Marcus

The play that was named the best on Broadway in 2015 will be ending its run on the Great White Way this summer.

"The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time,” which won five 2015 Tony awards including Best Play, will host a final performance at the Ethel Barrymore Theatre on Sept. 4.

At the time of its closing, “Curious Incident” will have played 23 previews and 800 regular performances -- making it the longest running play on Broadway in more than 10 years.

A national tour will launch this October.

The play, an adaptation of the 2003 novel of the same name, ‘Curious Incident’ stars Tyler Lea as 15-year-old Christopher, a boy with an exceptional intelligence who sets out to solve the mystery of who killed his neighbor’s dog. In the process, Christopher uncovers a deep family secret that shakes his world to the core.

The stage adaptation was written by Simon Stephens.

The National Theatre production, directed by Marianne Elliott, transferred to Broadway after a sold-out run in London’s West End, where it picked up seven 2013 Olivier Awards. The London production is still running and touring throughout the United Kingdom.
