The Play That Goes Wrong Houston Tickets
The Play That Goes Wrong Houston TicketsThe Play That Goes Wrong is a fun-filled comedy that follows the attempts of an amateur theater group called the Cornley Polytechnic Drama Society to run a stage production of a 1920 murder mystery. Unfortunately, everything goes wrong from falling props to crumbling sets to characters forgetting lines. However, as the set seems to have developed a personality of its own to thwart the production, the theater group members try their best to carry their production forward. The Play That Goes Wrong was written by three members of the Mischief Theatre Company: Henry Lewis, Jonathan Sayer and Henry Shields. The original Broadway cast included Rob Falconer as Trevor, Dean Hearn as Max, Henry Lewis as Robert and Charlie Russell as Sandra. It premiered on April 2, 2017, at the Lyceum Theatre at Broadway and staged over 700 performances.
Word-of-Mouth PopularityEven though The Play That Goes Wrong became such a sensation in London, it was practically an unknown underdog across the sea on Broadway. However, the four leading producers of the successful play were determined to introduce it to the American audience. The four lead producers include Kevin McCollum, Catherine Schreiber, Kenny Wax and J.J. Abrams. J.J. Abrams was previously known for directing Star Wars: The Force Awakens. The Play That Goes Wrong was J.J. Abrams' first attempt at directing a musical production. Relying practically on word of mouth and a successful marketing campaign, The Play That Goes Wrong slowly became the longest-running play that was on Broadway at that time. It was so successful that after it finally ended its engagement at the Lyceum Theatre at Broadway, it moved off-Broadway and continued playing at the New World Stages where it is still playing.
