The Broadway production of “The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time,” adapted from the novel by Mark Haddon, drew raves from critics and is currently attracting big audiences. But if you don’t have the time or money to get to New York, you can still get an idea of what all the hoopla is about. StageWorks Fresno and the New Ensemble combine forces to present a Hot Off the Stages play reading of Simon Stephens’ adapted script. The cast includes Joel Abels, Chris Carsten, Tessa Cavaletto, Hayley Galbraith, Miguel Gastelum, Mitchell Lam Hau and Amalie Larsen.
