ONLY BAD SHOW I’VE SEEN

The theater lost half of the audience by intermission. I’ve seen many shows at Tpac and this is by far the worst. I wish I could’ve traded my ticket for the drag show in the other theater and I can’t stand drag but it would’ve been by far the lesser of two evils. Avoided This show at all costs. My seats were fantastic it was the content that wasn’t

SUCH A DISAPPOINTMENT!

This is truly the worst Mirvish production I have ever seen. We were in a large group, only one of whom thought the show was even mildly amusing. The rest of us (and we all love Fawlty Towers and Monty Python) found it shallow, predictable, unfunny and quite tedious in parts. We noticed a few scattered people around us laughing hysterically after every line -- they seemed to each be alone, arriving seconds before the show began and leaving immediately after it was over. Were they planted there, paid to laugh? Sure seemed like it. This show is quite a disappointment, not at all up to Mirvish's usually excellent standards.

WORST SHOW WE'VE EVER SEEN!

We are regular Mirvish subscribers and this show was by far the worst show we've ever seen. There was nothing funny about it - it was just a series of silly, overacted scenes - people bumping into things and things falling off the wall. We left at intermission and would have left sooner if we could have without disturbing the people sitting around us. Do not waste your time and money seeing this show.

VERY DISAPPOINTING

My husband and I saw this show in Toronto at the Mirvish theatre. Although a few of the actors were brilliant, most were mediocre and a couple downright terrible. They ruined the play. It was a waste of money.

WASTE OF TIME AND MONEY

I have just returned home after leaving this dreadful play at intermission. It was mildly amusing for a few minutes, but it just dragged on with the same, worn out, predictable gags. Such as shame, as the actors did work hard, but they couldn't save the play. It definitely "went wrong"!!!

THE PLAY THAT GOES WRONG

My wife and I left at intermission. Same slapstick jokes over and over. Smiled the first two times, but after the sixth time the dead guy flaps his arms, it simply isn't clever, witty, or funny. I will say the actors are good. They work hard and seem to enjoy what they are doing. Its just what they are doing wasn't comedy. Save your money for the next show.

TERRIBLE

In order for things to go wrong, there has to be a context of things going right! first. This was a constant barrage of overacting, same gags repeated overused and obvious cliched pratfall comedy and just NOT FUNNY. First time I ever left the theater , ANY THEATER, at intermission. Waste of time, money and feel sorry the actors that have to do this. In fairness, people in the audience were laughing-quite a lot-am I an alien? Never even cracked a smile and I like slapstick humor. along with my two friends who also found it completely stupid and insipid. I have seen great things at the Fisher and look forward to my subscription being better than this. Watch paint dry it will be more entertaining!

What we thought

HILARIOUS british Slapstick

Brilliantly BAD! And if London Bridge ever does fall down, the Mischief Theatre Company would be my first suspect!

The name of the producing theatre company says it all, Mischief Theatre. With nothing short of a miracle, The Murder at Haversham Manor his heading out on tour! Thankfully though it is merely a guise for the brilliant The Play That Goes Wrong!
