The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time Gets Pittsburgh Premiere



In Pittsburgh, THE CURIOUS INCIDENT OF THE DOG IN THE NIGHT-TIME premieres at Heinz Hall, 600 Penn Avenue, Pittsburgh, PA 15222, January 3-7, 2017, as part of the  2016-2017 PNC Broadway in Pittsburgh series, presented by the Pittsburgh Cultural Trust, Pittsburgh Symphony, and Broadway Across America.

Fifteen-year old Christopher has an extraordinary brain; he is exceptionally intelligent but ill-equipped to interpret everyday life.  When he falls under suspicion for killing his neighbor’s dog, he sets out to identify the true culprit, which leads to an earth-shattering discovery and a journey that will change his life forever.

Performances are Tuesday through Thursday evenings at 7:30 p.m., Friday evening at 8:00 p.m., Saturday at 2:00 p.m. and 8:00 p.m. and Sunday at 1:00 p.m. and 6:30 p.m.  On Wednesday, January 4, at 6:30 p.m. PNC Broadway in Pittsburgh patrons are invited to join a free pre-show talk, Know The Show Before You Go, held at the Trust Arts Education Center, 805-807 Liberty Avenue, Pittsburgh, PA 15222.  For more information visit: www.TrustArts.org/KnowTheShow.
