BWW Interview: Adam Langdon of THE CURIOUS INCIDENT OF THE DOG IN THE NIGHT-TIME at The BushnellBWW Interview: Adam Langdon of THE CURIOUS INCIDENT OF THE DOG IN THE NIGHT-TIME at The Bushnell
by Joseph Harrison - Dec 27, 2016

It is rare when a show like THE CURIOUS INCIDENT OF THE DOG IN THE NIGHT-TIME goes on the road. While audiences across the U.S. may be used to seeing the latest Broadway musicals in their local theaters, they don't always have the chance to catch Tony winning plays unless they take a trip to New York.

Taking the stage as Christopher is recent Julliard graduate, Adam Langdon. I had the pleasure of speaking with Adam and learning about his experience playing this "exceptionally intelligent boy" and his unique connection to the role. (more...)
