for a previous production "I am genuinely worried about audiences who see 'The Play That Goes Wrong,' because it just might be the funniest show they'll ever see...The cast have perfected every bit of timing and dialogue this piece features...It's one of the very few shows I wouldn't mind seeing every night, from every single different seat, just to see everything that happens on stage...All in all, I couldn't recommend seeing this show any more."
