The Curious Incident Of The Dog In The Night-Time

As The Curious Incident of The Dog In The Night-Time settles into its new home at the Gielgud Theatre in London’s West End it continues to receive rave reviews.  

The technical elements are breathtaking as Paule Constable's lighting interacts with Finn Ross' video designs; Dickinson's incredible sound design; and Bunny Christie's versatile set design allow us to join Christopher’s world. Many of the technical lighting achievements are done using RC4Magic wireless DMX and would not have been possible without tiny RC4 dimmers.

The National Theatre was an earlier adopter of wireless dmx and dimming and have used multiple generations of RC4 Wireless products. Nearly every show produced by the Royal National Theatre has incorporated RC4Magic devices into the show. Additionally, each theatre space operates their own individual set of unique digital IDs to ensure no interference from other systems. Only the RC4Magic ID system provides customer-specific data security while ensuring equipment can be moved from space to space as needed.

Now on tour in the UK and in residence in New York, The Curious Incident of The Dog In The Night-Time continues to impress audience members with its magic. RC4 Wireless is proud to have helped the National Theatre’s artistic team realize their stellar vision, with the power of RC4 showing through dramatically in the show’s finale.
