Producer Kevin McCollum said "It's wonderful when a Wrong move feels so right. New World Stages is a great fit for the hit that won't quit!"
Producer Kenny Wax said "After almost two years on Broadway we think that we are finally ready for Off-Broadway."
Mischief Theatre co-founder and co-writer Jonathan Sayer said "I didn't know this was happening? Does this mean we have closed at The Lyceum? This kind of info really should be passed on."
The Play That Goes Wrong will be directed Off-Broadway by Matt DiCarlo. The original Broadway direction is by Mark Bell.
Cast and creative team will be announced at a later date.
The Play That Goes Wrong began performances on Broadway March 9 and officially opened on April 2, 2017 at The Lyceum Theatre (149 West 45 Street).

The Play That Goes Wrong is directed by Mark Bell, featuring set design by Tony Award Winner Nigel Hook, lighting design by Ric Mountjoy, sound design by Andy Johnsonand costume design by Roberto Surace.
