We laughed our butts off. Go pee before the show starts so you don't nearly pee yourself with laughter. :) You can bring your drink into the theater which is a nice bonus. My 40 yr old boyfriend who is 'not into plays' loved it...More

I am not a play person and usually am not eager to go to a show. I purchased the tickets on a recommendation from someone with a similar sense of humor. The best comparison I have is that the premise would have fit perfectly as...More

I didn't expect too much from this play. The available descriptions were not very informative and the tickets were not very expensive. But, my daughter wanted to attend an Off-Broadway play so, there we went. The Play that Goes Wrong turned out to be solid...More

We saw this today and I was amazed how funny it was. Perhaps having performed in a few bad plays myself, I could identify with so many aspects of this show. The cast was amazing and the set has to be experienced to be believed....More

It was a hilarious show with very original comedy acts. It was suitable even for the youngest in our group loved it (8years). Good family fun for an evening out. The theatre itself was a basic setup. We were at the far right corner and...More

As part of the 8th Grade Graduating trip to NYC it was recommended that we get tickets to this “Off-Broadway” production. Note, it is not really off, as the theatre is located on 50th Street and 8th Avenue. To be honest, I didn’t know what...More

Sat front row. At moments I thought someone or something would fall on us. I laughed throughout the entire play. And it just kept me engaged the whole time. All actors were really good. So happy I chose this play.

Not only is this play really hilarious it is so clever. Lots of twists, stunts and impeccable comedy timing. I would totally recommend seeing this play!

There is a small side line of humor going on in the box stage right.... basically a guy with bad cell phone manners. I. do not feel it was a material element of the play, but you will miss it if you sit orchestra rear stage... More

I concur with the prior responses, I can't think of anything vulgar enough to eschew with your kids, but they are likely to be impressed with the acting, the environment, and the slapstick aspects. The humor is such that... More
