Eminently predictable but also predictably good fun
Magic Goes Wrong makes for a night of sure-fire entertainment
Mischief Theatre may have a formula but its shows are far from formulaic
All in all, Mischief Theatre have done it again with another fun night at the theatre where more goes right than wrong
It’s the best “worst” magic show in town
The show is unashamedly silly but also affectionately celebratory of a kind of variety theatre that may have long vanished - but makes a welcome return here
A terrific new helping of the art of comic incompetence
The whole evening is a delight from start to finish - something you come to expect at a Mischief night
Despite its flaws, this production has some truly spectacular tricks
It’s an amiable show that makes good use of audience participation and neatly skewers the more ludicrous reaches of the magic industry
The ‘Goes Wrong’ franchise potters on, this time with added magic
Mischief is so adept at developing rapport with an audience, it works anyway
Peppered among the deliberate cock-ups are some genuine magic skits
Stunts and tricks go awry in this slapstick romp, though the running gag makes it hard to conjure suspense
The highs really are quite high
Funny and entertaining, if under-powered, fusion of magic and comedy from Mischief Theatre
