Broadway: Scooped Here Ages Ago Tony Winning “Curious Incident” Cast Already Leaving


Well, that was fast.

The cast of Broadway’s Tony winning “Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time” is leaving on September 13th. They’re all going including Alex Sharp, who won the Tony for Best Actor in a Drama. It was his first ever Broadway show, cast right out of acting school.

I told you months ago that a casting notice had gone out for replacements. When I asked Sharp, he pretended to know nothing about it. You see, that’s why he won Best Actor. I believed him.

“Curious Incident” started previews on September 10, 2014. So that’s a year. Broadway is no longer a place where anyone sticks around much longer.

The new cast features first timer Tyler Lea as Christopher. Lea is a a graduate from the University of North Carolina School of the Arts.

Well, listen, we didn’t know any of the original cast when they arrived. This group will be just as good, if not better. And the amazing set remains the same.
