Mischief Theatre collaborate with co-writers for the first time as they bring their new show Magic Goes Wrong, created with stage legends Penn and Teller, to the London stage as part of the company’s year-long residency at the Vaudeville Theatre.
The creators of The Play That Goes Wrong and The Comedy About A Bank Robbery have collaborated with Penn and Teller, whose successful double act has seen rise to become one of the world’s biggest magic acts selling out venues in London and the US. It is the next ‘Goes Wrong’ comedy in the West End after Peter Pan Goes Wrong and The Play That Goes Wrong.
Magic Goes Wrong will see the original company return to star in the show, which has been written by Penn Jillette, Henry Lewis, Jonathan Sayer, Henry Shields and Teller, and it will be directed by Adam Meggido. Penn and Teller will not be appearing on stage.
I would have given this 5 stars but did not consider the two girls prancing about as being of much interest. The bear in Trafalgar Square sequence, at the end of the show, really funny.
Very silly just what was needed
My partner and I went to this yesterday. Thoroughly enjoyed it. To make tricks go wrong and make it look authentic i am sure is harder than the lay person imagines. I particularly liked the delivery of the Mind Mangler ( mind mind mind!!!) I think Tommy Cooper would be proud of it.
Amazing show, it was a total joy. Laughing out loud throughout, and watching my son and his girlfriend doing the same. Cannot recommend enough
As always the crew have put on a fantastic show. May they continue writing and performing new shows in the future.
The team always leave me and my family in stitches! Great value for money and a life saver Christmas present!
Excellant show. The cast kept us amused from preshow. Very well produced and acted. Great entertainment. Would thoroughly recommend
Amazing show, lots of laughs and the story line was great! Well done
Very entertaining. They engaged the audience as usual, particularly those close to the front. The illusions were very convincing and hilarious. An excellent outing for the family.
