After a successful Broadway run, The Play That Goes Wrong is now making audiences laugh at New World Stages. Get The Play That Goes Wrong tickets now.
The Play That Goes Wrong is a play within a play. The show centers on the amateur theatre troupe Cornley Polytechnic Drama Society, and it's the opening night of their newest murder mystery show. But it's a struggle to get to the final curtain. While falling sets, forgotten lines, and missing actors would make for a disastrous theatre experience otherwise, at The Play That Goes Wrong off Broadway, these mishaps make for two hours' worth of nonstop fun and laughs.
The award-winning comedy The Play That Goes Wrong is a raucous affair on stage and a real-life, rags-to-riches tale off stage. Created by a group of LAMDA graduates who formed a troupe called Mischief Theatre, The Play That Goes Wrong began its life on the London fringe with only four paying patrons, and then did absolutely everything right from there. The comedy evolved into a West End hit that would ultimately win an Olivier Award in 2015.
The original London stars also headlined the play's Broadway transfer, which officially opened at the Lyceum Theatre in April 2017 and got a Tony Award for Best Scenic Design of a Play. The Broadway production enjoyed a lengthy run and finally played its closing performance on January 6, 2019. The mishaps continue, however, as The Play That Goes Wrong almost immediately reopened off Broadway in February 2019, delighting audiences with its signature brand of physical comedy.
The Play That Goes Wrong runs 2 hours, including an intermission.
The Play That Goes Wrong is currently running Off Broadway at New World Stages in the Theatre District. There are performances every day except Tuesday.
