Review this show


Join a hapless gang of moderately skilled and accident-prone magicians presenting a charity fundraiser. As the accidents spiral out of control, so does their fundraising target!

Created with Magic legends Penn & Teller, this evening of grand illusion with breath-taking tricks and typical Mischief comedy will tickle your funny bones and fill you with wonder.

MAGIC GOES WRONG opened to critical acclaim and was nominated for Best Entertainment or Comedy at the 2020 Olivier Awards. Be astounded and surprised this winter with tickets to a magic show like no other.

Age Recommendation: 10+

Critic reviews

Eminently predictable but also predictably good fun

Lyn Gardner for Stagedoor

It would be surprising to find anyone who doesn’t love this production

· The Upcoming

Magic Goes Wrong makes for a night of sure-fire entertainment

· London Box Office

Mischief Theatre may have a formula but its shows are far from formulaic

· Londonist

All in all, Mischief Theatre have done it again with another fun night at the theatre where more goes right than wrong

· West End Wilma

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

· London Theatre

A terrific new helping of the art of comic incompetence

· The Telegraph

The whole evening is a delight from start to finish - something you come to expect at a Mischief night

· Broadway World

Despite its flaws, this production has some truly spectacular tricks

· A Younger Theatre

It’s an amiable show that makes good use of audience participation and neatly skewers the more ludicrous reaches of the magic industry

· Financial Times

The ‘Goes Wrong’ franchise potters on, this time with added magic

· Time Out

Mischief is so adept at developing rapport with an audience, it works anyway

· Evening Standard

Peppered among the deliberate cock-ups are some genuine magic skits

· The Arts Desk

Stunts and tricks go awry in this slapstick romp, though the running gag makes it hard to conjure suspense

· The Guardian

The highs really are quite high

· WhatsOnStage

Funny and entertaining, if under-powered, fusion of magic and comedy from Mischief Theatre

· The Stage
