Neverland has never been so wrong. The new play Peter Pan Goes Wrong is set to play a 16-week limited Broadway run this spring, with performances beginning at the Barrymore Theatre on March 17 ahead of an April 19 opening night.

Peter Pan Goes Wrong is the latest Broadway show from Mischief Theatre, the company behind The Play That Goes Wrong. That play, which had a Tony-winning Broadway run and currently runs off Broadway at New World Stages, sees the fictional Cornley Drama Society battle endless mishaps as they try to stage a murder mystery drama.

Peter Pan Goes Wrong also features the Cornley troupe, who are now attempting to stage J. M. Barrie's classic fairytale. Fast-paced slapstick comedy unfolds as they encounter various troubles with their set, actors, and more.

Mischief members Henry Lewis, Jonathan Sayer, and Henry Shields created Peter Pan Goes Wrong, which premiered in London in 2013. The show has since played multiple London engagements, one of which earned it an Olivier Award nomination for Best New Comedy, and made its North American premiere in 2022 in Canada.

The full original cast of Peter Pan Goes Wrong will star in the Broadway premiere, including Lewis, Sayer, and Shields. The cast also features Chris Leask, Ellie Morris, Charlie Russell, Greg Tannahill and Nancy Zamit.

Adam Meggido directs Peter Pan Goes Wrong, which features set design by Simon Scullion, costume design by Roberto Surace, lighting design by Matt Haskins, sound design by Ella Wahlström, and original music by Richard Baker and Rob Falconer.
