Why Watch The Play That Goes Wrong

Winner of the Olivier Award for Best New Comedy, The Play That Goes Wrong celebrates the best and worst of theater, and is slapstick comedy at its best. Written by Olivier Award winners Jonathan Sayer, Henry Lewis, and Henry Shields, and co-produced by superstar J.J. Abrams and Kevin McCollum (Rent, Avenue Q, and Something Rotten!), alongside London producer Kenny Wax, the show is one of this year’s theater must-sees! Get your The Play That Goes Wrong tickets now to witness this talented troupe’s masterpiece in action.

The Story

Set in the 1920s The Play That Goes Wrong follows the antics of the Cornley University Drama Society. While staging their production, ‘The murder at Haversham Manor’, things, err, don’t quite go as planned. A lead actor with a concussion, a corpse that can't play dead, actors slipping out of ‘character’, malfunctioning sets, and a complete disaster of misplaced drinks - it’s one mishap after the other. This behind-the-scenes comedy is brilliantly hilarious!

First row in the middle was a new but awesome experience. The play itself was painfully funny, really got cramp in our abs :)

I love comedy plays. And this was an amazing performance. All the actors were fantastic. it was really well done :). I would actually go back to see it again that's how good it was. We were second row. Was so amazing to see the facial expressions so close up.

Play was really good but the seats I paid for were not the same seats at the venue. I paid for middle section orchestra and the seats were all the way to the left side. View was obstructed

Came from out of town to visit NYC for weekend girls trip! She recommended we come see this play! It was awesome from beginning to end! You laugh throughout the entire time! Was well played out by the entire crew! The cast members mentioned at the end of the play that they had another play similar to this one called "Peter Pan goes wrong!" We wanted to get tickets for the show on Sunday evening as we loved this show, however we couldn't get tickets online as there were too many issue and even stooped back by the theatre to possibly purchase them in person but the price was $150 a piece by then and we decided that was too much to spend so we didn't end up going, but you have to see this play! Awesome crew and cast members!!! 💕💜
