UNION -- It’s often said by chefs “We eat with our eyes.” And while that may be true in the culinary world, it’s also true that a dynamic set design can be something that draws an audience into an exceptional experience of a play. Such is the case with Kean Theatre Conservatory’s production of The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-time by Simon Stephens that opened on Friday, October 13 at the Bauer Boucher Theatre Center on the Kean University campus in Union. Directed by Westfield resident and Kean professor Holly Logue, the Tony award– winning two-act play based on Mark Haddon’s best–selling novel is the fascinating story of a 15-year-old boy Christopher (Eitan Hiller) whose brain is neurodivergent. The show is propelled by videos and still pictures of the sketches in the boy’s notebook projected onto three enormous screens upstage. This is a visually and emotionally stunning production.
