February 27, 2013, 11:13 am -- /EPR NETWORK/ -- The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night Time was a smash hit book when it arrived on our shelves in 2003, winning a string of high profile awards for the compelling tale of a 15 year-old boy on the autistic spectrum who finds himself turning detective.
Now, the book has been successfully adapted into a fantastic stage show, and after a popular run at the National Theatre has transferred to the Apollo Theatre in London's West End for a three month run at the end of spring.
Mark Haddon's book features rising star Luke Treadway who has returned to the stage after lauded roles in “Attack the Block” and “You Instead” and is sure to be a great hit when he takes to the boards on 25 March for the first performance of the run.
The Apollo Theatre itself will become part of the appeal given the exaggerated décor of London's first Edwardian Theatre. Do bear in mind, however, that the Apollo has one of the highest balconies in London, so if you suffer from vertigo, don't book a ticket right at the top!
Finding cheap hotels in London, let alone the West End, can be a challenge but thankfully LondonTown.com has picked out a selection of conveniently located (and generously discounted) hotels in the area.
For the truly luxury experience try the W London Leicester Square hotel with nearly a third off a double room through LondonTown.com. The hotel is only two minutes' walk from the Apollo so couldn't be better located for theatre goers looking to spoil themselves.
Or, for something a little cheaper why not try the Strand Palace Hotel London. Fifteen minutes' walk away, a double room costs just over Ł 100 a night and could be even cheaper if you keep your eyes peeled for a bargain. http://www.LondonTown.com
