It’s very rare for me to be as excited walking out of a theatre, as I was walking in! Mark Haddon’s mega-successful novel, ‘The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time’ is given a refurbishment as impressive as that of the Apollo Theatre. As soon as you walk in, you are shifted into the mind of maths-genius, Christopher Boone and his skewed perception of reality.
Luke Treadaway’s performance as Christopher could only be described as perfection – replicating the main character flawlessly. Treadaway takes on the character of Christopher and his extraordinary brain is extremely moving as is his on-stage relationship with all of the characters, both physically and verbally.
The use of lighting, sounds and the set brings the escapism of the Theatre to a whole new level as the whole audience are on the edge of their seat through-out the production... but wish they were permanently tied to it at the end!
If this is the only thing you see in the theatre this year – consider yourself fulfilled as this is a production that you will never forget. Just as Christopher’s detective work upturned his world... so will this for you! Outstanding and fantastically inspirational! A must-see for both long-time Theatre-lovers, and newbies a like!
