The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time“, winner of five 2015 Tony Awards including Best Play, just started a three-week run at the Ellie Caulkins Opera House, 1385 Curtis St.

The play by Simon Stephens is adapted from Mark Haddon’s best-selling novel about Christopher Boone, an exceptionally smart, autistic 15-year-old who makes a life-changing discovery while trying to find out who killed his neighbor’s dog.

Tonight’s performance is at 7:30 p.m. and includes a post-show Q&A with the cast. Tickets are $30-$105.


For their next evening of storytelling, The Narrators will focus entirely on refugees. They’ll share their stories on the theme of “home” starting at 8 p.m. at the Buntport Theater, 717 Lipan St.

There’s a suggested donation of $5. No reservations necessary. They’ll be serving beer from Renegade Brewing Co. as well as wine for donations.


3 Course Comedy is at it again, and this week’s theme is “Moroccan foods.” Tonight’s comic lineup includes Dick Black, Rebecca Robinson, Derrick Stroup and, as always, your hosts Adrian Mesa and Eric Henderson.

Food is served at 8 p.m. and the show starts at 8:30 p.m. at the Deer Pile, 206 E. 13th Ave.
