Have you ever wondered what it might look like if Sherlock Holmes and Monty Python had an illegitimate Broadway baby? Even if you haven’t, you can find the answer at the anticipated Columbus debut of The Play That Goes Wrong. Yes, the Tony Award-winning Broadway comedy hits the Palace Theatre stage April 9-14. And, you won’t want to miss a single, uproarious second.

Set in fictional Cornley University, The Play That Goes Wrong tells the story of a drama society’s attempts to put on a 1920s’ murder mystery. And, as you might guess, not much goes right. The leading lady may be unconscious, the corpse may be death-defying and the actors may struggle with everything, but it all means big laughs for you. So, get ready to laugh through their mishaps, accidents and mayhem. You’ll know why The New York Times dubbed it “a gut-busting hit” and Huffington Post called it “the funniest play Broadway has ever seen.” Feel free to bring the kiddos along, as it’s fun for all ages.

In addition to tremendous reviews from all around, the play has won some serious awards. This includes the Tony Award for Best Set Design,’s Audience Choice Award for Best Play and the Theater Fans Choice Award for Best Play. So, see what all the buzz is about.
