Many of us believed that The Play That Goes Wrong, Broadway's longest-running play, was closing its doors this September, but due to popular demand this madcap production is sticking around a little while longer till January 6, 2019!
Officially opening on April 27, 2017, this Broadway transfer from London has surpassed many a play in run length, at the time of closing the production will have played 745 performances!
The Play That Goes Wrong is also set for a national tour in 2019.
The funniest theatrical send-up since Noises-Off, The Play That Goes Wrong follows a disaster-prone amateur theatrical troupe as they try to mount a West End show. Packed full of misplaced props, strangled mispronunciations and a set that seemingly has a life of its own, this gag-a-minute comedy is an uproarious tribute to all of theatre's noble failures.
This Broadway production boasts the original cast of the London production and is co-produced by Star Wars: The Force Awakens director J.J. Abrams, marking his first venture into theatrical production.
What is The Play That Goes Wrong about?
After a large inheritance lands in their laps, the members of the Cornley Polytechnic Drama Society decide to realise their dream and stage a show at a West End theatre. Unfortunately, their production of The Murder at Haversham Manor, a musty old Agatha Christie rip-off, is doomed from the start. Whether it's the set falling apart around their ears, runaway dog actors or corpses which simply can't keep still, everything and more that can go wrong, does go wrong. Still, as they say in the business, the show must go on!
