BWW Review: Village's THE CURIOUS INCIDENT OF THE DOG IN THE NIGHT-TIME is Curiously  Photo BWW Review: Village's THE CURIOUS INCIDENT OF THE DOG IN THE NIGHT-TIME is Curiously Inconsistent
by Jay Irwin - Mar 15, 2019

K.I.S.S. It's the best advice you can give anyone in acronym form; meaning, Keep It Simple Stupid, and it's the mantra that the folks at Village Theatre should have taken to heart when attempting to stage Simon Stephens' brilliant play, 'The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-time'. Now, you may say, 'But Jay, the Broadway and touring productions were anything but simple.' And that's true, but unless you can pull off that level of stage wizardry, then you need to go in another direction. Unfortunately, Village went in another direction but also kept everything quite complex throwing everything they could think of on stage, none of which really worked completely, resulting in a mish mash of inconsistencies and a play that didn't communicate what it should.
