She's an unbreakable actress in a breakable play! Ellie Kemper will guest star in Mischief Theatre Company's Peter Pan Goes Wrong on Broadway from June 20-25 only.

The show centers on an amateur theatre company's attempt to put on J. M. Barrie's Peter Pan, which goes awry at every turn thanks to offstage feuds, wardrobe malfunctions, set disasters, and more.

The Peter Pan Goes Wrong cast includes its original members from the show's 2013 London premiere. The show features Matthew Cavendish as Max, Bianca Horn as Gill, Harry Kershaw as Francis, Chris Leask as Trevor, Henry Lewis as Robert, Ellie Morris as Lucy, Charlie Russell as Sandra, Jonathan Sayer as Dennis, Henry Shields as Chris, Greg Tannahill as Jonathan, and Nancy Zamit as Annie.

Peter Pan Goes Wrong is at the Barrymore Theatre through July 23.
