About the show

The second instalment of Mischief Theatre’s residency at Vaudeville Theatre has been announced, and it promises to be a barrel of ridiculous fun. Magic Goes Wrong is a creative collaboration with the legendary duo Penn & Teller. Catch this brand new show in the West End from 14 December 2019.

Mischief Theatre’s Vaudeville Theatre season kicks off with Groan Ups, a madcap regression to the schoolyard. The award-winning company will present three new productions in total during its residency, which ends in August 2020.

In Magic Goes Wrong, the original Mischief company return to the stage to play a posse of down-on-their-luck magicians who are putting on a charity event. We meet a classic magician, a mind reader extraordinaire, a circus double-act, an American jeopardy trickster and a quick-change artist. As with all endeavours within the Mischief universe, it’s far from plain sailing for the hapless gang. Accidents start to happen, and their fundraising seems in danger of falling far below its target. A joyous evening of slapstick comedy, crowd-pleasing magic tricks and the theatre company’s trademark humour, the new show promises to be a dazzler.

Led by Artistic Director Henry Lewis and Company Director Jonathan Sayer, Mischief Theatre has been tickling audiences since 2008. Their most enduring shows The Play That Goes Wrong and The Comedy About A Bank Robbery have been running without interruption in the West End for several years and have earned them numerous awards.

Entertainers Penn Fraser Jillette and Raymond Joseph Teller have been performing together as Penn & Teller since the 1970s, their career straddling film, television, video games, books and stage. Their signature combination of magic tricks and comedy make them a seamless match with Mischief Theatre.

A show of grand illusion, farcical humour and top-notch entertainment, Magic Goes Wrong is set to wow West End audiences. Fans of Mischief’s other shows, of Penn & Teller or simply of good, silly fun should be sure to see it when it runs at Vaudeville Theatre from 14 December 2019. Press night is on 8 January 2020.
