It could very well be the the winner of the Tony Award for Best Play. But “The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night Time” will be getting a whole new cast come September 15th.
A casting call has gone out today for all the characters including Christopher, played in New York so brilliantly by newcomer Alex Sharp. Sharp will likely be nominated for a Tony and could easily win Best Actor.
The curious incident here is that if the play does win a lot of Tonys– or at least is nominated– you’d think the producers would want the original cast to stick around longer.
Anyway, the show is genius, and deserves all praises and plaques. I guess, see it now before Labor Day when a new group comes in. The good news is, the set remains the same.
