A Curious Incident Of The Dog In The Night-TimeThis play is all about dynamic sets and eye-catching visuals. The set features mix media and you won't have any idea what will happen next visually. It takes a rather contemporary story and transforms it into a surreal performance.
Since then this novel has become apart of the YA canon--despite being released as a adult fiction in the U.S.
Having read the novel helped me follow the narrative in the play. It takes a while to understand and make sense of the visual cues so it can be jarring to try putting together the story.I'm curious to see how Lelia Sale's This Song Will Save Your life with be adapted into a play.
*We saw the Taylor Trensch production.
ChicagoGoing into the this show it seemed like everyone had either come in having already seen the film or to see Brandy Norwood as Roxie Hart. The musical was high energy, sexy and funny. The story and characters clicked for me here much better than they did in the movie. I actually understood the motivation and plot devices much better.
