From the show:
The time is right to see The Play That Goes Wrong, Broadway’s funniest smash hit! This Olivier Award-winning comedy is a hilarious hybrid of Monty Python and Sherlock Holmes. Welcome to opening night of The Murder at Haversham Manor where things are quickly going from bad to utterly disastrous. With an unconscious leading lady, a corpse that can’t play dead, and actors who trip over everything (including their lines), it’s “a riotous explosion of comedy!” (The Daily Beast) and “tons of fun for all ages!” (HuffPost). Ben Brantley of The New York Times calls The Play That Goes Wrong “a gut-busting hit,” and Cindy Adams of the New York Post has just one word for you: “Go!” Get tickets now – it would be WRONG to wait!
See it if you haven't seen it before. Timing is now a bit off; it's a bit bedraggled, but for first timers great fun. Theatre shenanigans galore.
Don't see it if New theatre provides intimacy with diminished returns. Most actors seem to be just going through the motions. Needs to restore crispness.
See it if you like slap stick silly British humor, like Monty Python.
Don't see it if If you don't physical humor with repetitive jokes and over the top acting.

See it if If you like slapstick and or British humor, you will like this show.
Don't see it if We didn’t find the slap stick humor funny. It was like three stooges humor that was dumb.
See it if You like predicable humor. You never laugh before the majority of the audience. You’re not hoping for noises off.
Don't see it if You are expecting great farce or great British comedy. I tried to get into it but the mishaps were telegraphed. Oh for a moment of surprise!
See it if It was a bit confusing. It had some funny parts but over all I thought it was a bit childish.
Don't see it if If you like musicals this is not for you. It's a dry comedy that for more was not very interesting. The story line is a bit confusing.
See it if We were a party of four; two enjoyed it and two did not. If you like slap-stick and just nonsense, it's the play for you.
Don't see it if You enjoy plays with depth and a story-line. This isn't the play for you.
