NEW YORK (AP) — "The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time" will end its two-year run on Broadway this fall.

Producers of the show about a gifted 15-year-old mathematician with Asperger's syndrome said the play will close Set. 4 after playing 23 previews and 800 regular performances.

The London import is based on an adaptation of Mark Haddon's best-selling novel and was adapted by playwright Simon Stephens and directed by Marianne Elliott.

It won the best new play Tony Award and recouped its $4.75 million capitalization. In London, it continues to play at the Gielgud Theatre and a U.S. tour will launch in October.
