Since the success of The Play That Goes Wrong, Mischief Theatre has now delivered a new show entirely appropriate for the festive season and with as many laughs as any pantomime – but does it fly high or fall flat on its face?
The Guardian: *** Lyn Gardner called it: “harmlessly goofy entertainment.”
The Stage: ***** Mark Shenton was impressed saying: “It spins what is essentially a one-joke show about the relentless catastrophe of a live performance into a dizzying, dazzling display of meta-theatrical brilliance.”
The Telegraph: **** Jane Shilling commented: “Henry Shields and Henry Lewis as joint actor/directors Chris Bean and Robert Grove, give bravura accounts of characters hopelessly at odds with the physical world.”
London Theatre: **** “the funniest night in town since One Man, Two Guvnors.”
A Younger Theatre: Manuel Munoz said: “Peter Pan Goes Wrong combines all the ingredients that have made its predecessor so successful: absurdity, perfect comedic timing, tons of stage mishaps and a touch of complete disaster.”
Whatsonstage: ***** Ben Hewis urges readers to go and see the show: “Peter Pan Goes Wrong is an absolute must see.”
The Evening Standard: **** Fiona Mountford was impressed saying: “The precision timing behind the gags and slapstick is the constant joy of Adam Meggido’s razor-sharp production.”
Time Out: **** Tom Wicker said: “This is a joyfully silly show that unpacks itself like a festive treat, about a production whose stream of failures you won’t want to end.”
Peter Pan Goes Wrong runs at the Apollo Shaftesbury until the 31st January. For more information visit: http://www.theplaythatgoeswrong.com/peter-pan-goes-wrong . To buy tickets visit: Theatre Tickets Direct.co.uk, Discount Theatre.com , Last Minute.com, Love Theatre.com and Ticketmaster.co.uk.
