So be prepared to have all your emotional and sensory buttons pushed, including a few you may have not known existed. As directed by Marianne Elliott (a Tony winner for the genius tear-jerker “War Horse”), with a production that retunes the way you see and hear, “Curious Incident” can be shamelessly manipulative.

-----New York Times
The success of the book has much to do with the narrator’s uncanny mix of factual rigor and literalism (he cannot abide metaphors and idiomatic expressions), and his bravery in the face of traumatic daily life. That combination of intense emotionalism and visual dazzle is captured brilliantly in Marianne Elliott’s production, awash in video projections and moving parts (the ingenious grid-lined set is by Bunny Christie). Simon Stephens’s lean, fast-moving adaptation makes smart use of the ensemble to create a polyphony of voices for narrative heavy lifting, while his domestic scenes don’t stint on grimness.

----TimeOut New York
Simon Stephens’ adaptation gives access to what’s in Christopher’s head, through a journal in which he records his experiences. Siobhan (Francesca Faridany, who gives a lovely performance), a kindly teacher at Christopher’s school, reads the story aloud and convinces him to turn his book into a play.Director Marianne Elliott, a Tony winner for her stunning staging of “War Horse,” proves a master at orchestrating visceral and wildly energetic scenes as well as poignant hushed moments.
