‘The Play That Goes Wrong’ will have you in stitches
Have you ever said to yourself “what else can go wrong?” and then it does? Well, welcome to The Play That Goes Wrong, where the “what else” continuously happens.
Yes, the hit from across the pond has landed in Las Vegas, complete with props falling off the wall, floors collapsing, doors sticking, actors “forgetting” their lines, miscues and so much more.
It’s all just part of the play, and you’ll be laughing until it hurts as you share in the misadventures of the actors.
Written by three British lads (Jonathan Sayer, Henry Shields and Henry Lewis) who are best friends and shared an apartment in London, The Play That Goes Wrong is a play within a play, and Shields explains some of it by saying, “We've got lots of silent film stuff—a lot of that comes from John. He has a real obsession with Charlie Chaplin and Buster Keaton.”
The last scene in the play is actually a tribute to Keaton from his movie Steamboat, Bill, Jr. and puts the final touches on the side-splitting comedy.
