Entertaining, Funny, Clever

See it if you want to see a show with wit and charm, with opportunities for audience participation (sit in the stalls for this).

Don't see it if you want a show that is captivating from start to finish. The Mind Mangler was brilliant but some of the other acts lacked the same presence

Time Out London
October 28th, 2020
For a previous production

If you enjoy watching flustered English people get more flustered as stuff goes wrong – and let’s be clear, that is literally their entire shtick – then ‘Magic Goes Wrong’ sees them pulls the trick off once again.

For a previous production

Everyone, on-stage and (manifestly off) works their socks off to keep things continually derailing on time (direction by Adam Meggido).

For a previous production

The show is unashamedly silly but also affectionately celebratory of a kind of variety theatre that may have long vanished - but makes a welcome return here.

For a previous production

Mischief is so adept at developing rapport with an audience, it works anyway. As Paul Daniels used to say: that’s magic.

For a previous production

It’s executed with love, determination and skill. Tommy Cooper, you suspect, would have loved it. I know I did.

The Stage (UK)
January 9th, 2020
For a previous production

But, though it doesn’t hit the highs of some previous Mischief outings, it remains a solidly entertaining show, from a company evidently keen to test itself, and, for once, there are a few sweet instances where everything goes right.

The Guardian (UK)
January 9th, 2020
For a previous production

Stunts and tricks go awry in this slapstick romp, though the running gag makes it hard to conjure suspense.

What's On Stage (UK)
January 9th, 2020
For a previous production

Those who love the "Goes Wrong" brand will have a pleasant number of laughs to keep the mirth coming, but it's hard to shake the feeling that, for a large portion of the run-time, Mischief may have missed a trick.
