Producers of The Play That Goes Wrong, currently the longest-running play on Broadway, will mount a North American tour for the 2018–2019 season, including a five-week engagement at the Ahmanson Theatre in Los Angeles.
Casting and additional cities will be announced in the coming months.
Co-written by Mischief Theatre company members Henry Lewis, Jonathan Sayer, and Henry Shields, The Play That Goes Wrong introduces The Cornley University Drama Society, who is attempting to put on a 1920s murder mystery, but as the title suggests, everything that can go wrong does, as the accident-prone thespians battle on against all odds to get to their final curtain call.
The Broadway production, which transferred from the West End, opened at the Lyceum Theatre April 2. It went on to receive a Tony Award for Best Set Design.
Mark Bell directs with set design by Nigel Hook, lighting design by Ric Mountjoy, sound design by Andy Johnson, and costume design by Roberto Surace.
The Play That Goes Wrong is produced on Broadway by Kevin McCollum, J.J. Abrams, Kenny Wax, Stage Presence Ltd., Catherine Schreiber, Ken Davenport, Double Gemini Productions / deRoy-Brunish, Damian Arnold / TC Beech, Greenleaf Productions / Bard-Roth, Martian Entertainment / Jack Lane / John Yonover, and Lucas McMahon.
