The Play That Goes Wrong Details

Winner of Best New Comedy in 2015 (Laurence Olivier Awards), The Play That Goes Wrong is an uproarious comedy about an amateur 1920s murder mystery production that goes horribly awry. Originally premiering in the UK in 2012, The Play That Goes Wrong made its Broadway debut early in 2017. Poking fun at the potential disaster any live show could experience, The Play That Goes Wrong will have you in stitches from the moment the seemingly clueless “stage crew” takes the stage until the final curtain. A fanciful imagining of every stage actor’s worst nightmare combined into one ill-fated production, the unlucky action is nonstop and endlessly amusing. The set itself is part of the hilarity, and the innovative design won a Tony Award for Best Scenic Design in a Play in 2017. With so many hysterically unfortunate scenes, audiences are sure to leave the theater still laughing long after the final curtain comes down.

It takes some talent to perform in a stage show that is bent on presenting every possible catastrophe, and the cast of The Play That Goes Wrong delivers the chaos with gusto. They are magnificently awful, their timing impeccable, and their ability to hold themselves together while appearing to fall completely apart is amazing. There is hardly time to catch your breath from laughter before something else goes wrong, and yet somehow, the cast manages to present this ill-fated production within a production as if it was meant to be a serious play.

While the cast of The Play That Goes Wrong is superb, it’s the set itself that often steals the show. Set Designer Nigel Hook outdoes himself, creating a masterpiece of flawed props, with an especially spectacular surprise at the end of the show. Creating a set that’s meant to fall apart show after show is a monumental task, but Nigel Hook pulls it off brilliantly. This is the second time Nigel Hook has worked as Set Designer on The Play That Goes Wrong, and his 2017-18 set is even more masterful than his work in 2014.

The Play That Goes Wrong is Co-Producer J.J. Abrams’ first foray into Broadway. A life-long fan of the theater, J.J. Abrams is known for his work on films and television as a writer, producer, director, and actor. Active since 1982, he holds too many credits to list here, but most fans will recognize him for his work on the most recent Star Wars movies, several of the Mission Impossible movies, and the TV show Lost.
