The Play That Goes Wrong Reviews
Patti Owen from Boston, Massachusetts
FUNNIEST THING I'VE EVER SEEN
Saw this in NY in May with my husband and 17 year old granddaughter. Hilarious! The physicality of the performers is amazing. Cant's wait to see it in Boston.

THE PLAY THAT GOES WRONG
I saw this play in London, England this past June. It was hilarious. I loved it and after the show I even got to meet 2 of the actors. Most impressed. It was brilliant :-)

LAUGHED UNTIL I CRIED
I saw this in New York City recently with my two grown children, son-in-law, and 14 year old granddaughter. Our group consisted of an actor, a university professor, a creative ad agency director, an aspiring musical theatre performer, and a retired educator. Quite a diverse group. Let me say.....we all laughed until I thought we would fall out of our seats. It was crazy, silly, hilarious fun! One of the best times ever! I highly recommend this delightful evening of zaniness for everyone.

A FUNNY 2-HOUR LONG MONTY PYTHON SKETCH
This play featured very skilled actors doing amazing things with comedic timing and physical comedy. It was very funny at times. However, it is very self-aware, and seems to try too hard to get laughs. It would be a really funny 30-minute sketch, but after that it became as exhausting to watch as it, no doubt, was to rehearse. My wife and I left at intermission.

SOME FUNNY MOMENTS BUT I WAS DISAPPOINTED
Interesting play in that many in the audience were slapping knees and laughing hysterically. By observation they were mostly 65-80 year olds...which makes sense because this show is closer to vaudevillian slapstick than the kind of crisp, clever material that is written today. Like I said, there are funny riffs and moments, especially in the beginning but as time marches on the uniqueness wears off and the corniness, unproductive sillyness and flat out unfunny stuff takes over. Kind of show you either like or dislike alot...and I didn't like it.

ONLY BAD SHOW I’VE SEEN
The theater lost half of the audience by intermission. I’ve seen many shows at Tpac and this is by far the worst. I wish I could’ve traded my ticket for the drag show in the other theater and I can’t stand drag but it would’ve been by far the lesser of two evils. Avoided This show at all costs. My seats were fantastic it was the content that wasn’t

SUCH A DISAPPOINTMENT!
This is truly the worst Mirvish production I have ever seen. We were in a large group, only one of whom thought the show was even mildly amusing. The rest of us (and we all love Fawlty Towers and Monty Python) found it shallow, predictable, unfunny and quite tedious in parts. We noticed a few scattered people around us laughing hysterically after every line -- they seemed to each be alone, arriving seconds before the show began and leaving immediately after it was over. Were they planted there, paid to laugh? Sure seemed like it. This show is quite a disappointment, not at all up to Mirvish's usually excellent standards.
