Magic Goes Wrong - Vaudeville Theatre, London
Age Restriction: This show is recommended for children aged 12+
Mischief Theatre are back with another addition to their list of Goes Wrong plays, this time in the West End at Vaudeville Theatre. Magic Goes Wrong is their latest production, from the phenomenal company that brought to stage West End hits like The Play That Goes Wrong, Peter Pan Goes Wrong and The Comedy About a Bank Robbery.
What exactly is Magic Goes Wrong?
If you didn’t know already, this production was written in association with Penn & Teller, one of the world’s most famous magic and comedy duos. Although they won’t be a part of the show, you can rest assured it will be a surreal experience full of their ideas, wit and whimsy. JJ Abrams is one of the show’s West End producers, the Star Wars director has professed to being a huge fan, and has helped produce one of their other productions.
The central story? An unfortunate group of magicians aim to raise money for a charity event, yet the more their accidents pile up, the more their fundraising goal piles up too.
The Mischief Theatre Company got started almost a decade ago when a group of LAMDA students united their creative abilities and made their mark in the world of theatre. The Telegraph called them “fringe whizz-kids turned theatrical world-leaders”. Theirs was a story of success, resulting in multiple West End shows running in succession - and for three consecutive years they were nominated for the Oliver Award in the category best new comedy - one of which they won. Their success ventures far beyond the borders of the UK, with international acclaim for their shows that have been staged in multiple foreign cities.
And beyond this, their reputation for success has been further cemented beyond the stage, with two BBC One specials, with an adaptation of their A Christmas Carol Goes Wrong and Peter Pan goes Wrong.
Tickets are available until late summer, so be sure to buy yours and attend this magical comedy at the Vaudeville theatre. It’s best suited for those aged 12 and over.
