The Play That Goes Wrong Detroit Tickets
The Play That Goes Wrong Detroit TicketsThe Play That Goes Wrong is a comedy written by members of the Mischief Theatre Company. The comedy sets up a play-within-a-play scenario where the fictitious theater production group, Cornley Polytechnic Drama Society, attempts to run a stage production about a murder mystery set in the 1920s. However, misfortune seems to plague the Cornley Polytechnic Drama Society, and everything that could go wrong did go wrong, from falling props to forgotten lines. The very set seems to be the antagonist of the play. Comedy ensues as the theater group bravely tries to carry their production forward. The Broadway production premiered in 2017 at Broadway's Lyceum Theatre. While in production at Broadway between 2017 and 2018, The Play That Goes Wrong staged over 700 performances.
From Unknown to a SensationWhen the four leading producers of The Play That Goes Wrong brought the play from London to Broadway, the play was practically unknown by Broadway theatergoers. However, the four producers were determined to make the production a success. Producers Kevin McCollum, Catherine Schreiber, Kenny Wax and J.J. Abrams relied mostly on word of mouth and a successful marketing campaign to spread the word. This would be J.J. Abrams' first attempt at producing a musical. Previously, J.J. Abrams directed Star Wars: The Force Awakens, the 2009 Star Trek, Star Trek Into Darkness and Star Trek Beyond. Due to its success, The Play That Goes Wrong became the longest running play at that time. After it finished its engagement on Broadway, The Play That Goes Wrong moved to the off-Broadway theater New World Stages to continue its production.
