Mischief Theatre reveals plans for The Musical That Goes Wrong
Olivier-winning Mischief Theatre has revealed plans for The Musical That Goes Wrong, after its highly successful runs with The Play That Goes Wrong and Peter Pan Goes Wrong.
The theatre company has just opened The Comedy About a Bank Robbery in the West End, which co-writer Henry Shields said had been created to try something radically different from the Goes Wrong brand.
But he said the company was planning The Musical That Goes Wrong as a future project.
“When we did Peter Pan we had this feeling we could do another Goes Wrong show – that would be the easy next step. Maybe The Musical That Goes Wrong, which people keep telling us to do and one day we will,” he said, adding: “We thought we would try something radically different, to see if we have it in us to be more than one premise, to be real writers who do all kinds of things. We thought we would take the braver option of doing something different and having a go.”
Producer Kenny Wax also told The Stage that The Play That Goes Wrong would tour next year, with Peter Pan Goes Wrong running in the West End again later this year.
