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+
Eminently predictable but also predictably good fun
It would be surprising to find anyone who doesn’t love this production
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
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
