The Play That Goes Wrong - 2017 - Broadway

$30-$199

The time is right to see THE PLAY THAT GOES WRONG, Broadway's funniest and longest-running play! This Olivier Award-winning comedy is a hilarious hybrid of Monty Python and Sherlock Holmes. Welcome to opening night of The Murder at Haversham Manor where things are quickly going from bad to utterly disastrous. With an unconscious leading lady, a corpse that can't play dead, and actors who trip over everything (including their lines), it's "A RIOTOUS EXPLOSION OF COMEDY!" (The Daily Beast) and "TONS OF FUN FOR ALL AGES!" (HuffPost). Ben Brantley of The New York Times calls THE PLAY THAT GOES WRONG "A GUT-BUSTING HIT," and Cindy Adams of the New York Post has just one word for you: "GO!" Get tickets now – it would be WRONG to wait!

Featured Reviews For The Play That Goes Wrong


‘The Play That Goes Wrong,’ produced on Broadway by J.J. Abrams — theater review - NY Daily News
A comedy that comes up short with laughs and overstays its welcome - now that's murder.

J.J. Abrams Sets Sights on Broadway -- Will the Farce Be With Him? - NBC New York
You either go for this sort of thing or you don't -- I don't, particularly, but I was in the minority at a recent performance. "The Play That Goes Wrong" works best when you believe the actors are in real danger. There are times you do. I might've enjoyed it as a 70-minute romp. As things stand, for me at least, a comedy this tired just can't be right.

Everything that could conceivably trip up seasoned performers - who've been reciting monologues in front of their bathroom mirrors since they were toddlers, bring down a set considered to be a landmark in design for the stage (or in the history of architecture since the Greeks built their first temple and the Romans engineered their first aqueduct), and/or send scores of trembling thespians to the emergency room after but one performance - actually befall the cast and crew of The Play That Goes Wrong.

On a recent episode of The Late Show With Stephen Colbert, J.J. Abrams appeared as a guest. When Abrams wouldn't share spoilers about any of his upcoming projects, he offered compensation by inviting Colbert to see The Play That Goes Wrong, which Abrams co-produced. Colbert asked if he could bring someone, then proceeded to invite the entire Ed Sullivan Theater audience of about 400. The crowd cheered and Colbert assured them that after the show, they would all be heading over to see the Broadway play.
