This play is not to be missed. Slapstick comedy that is extremely clever and fast paced. I haven't laughed this hard in years and if it comes to my town, will see it again. So many jokes coming so fast, and the physical comedy and...More

We saw The Play That Goes Wrong, a British comedy that was excellent! We were able to score semi-obstructed seats in the balcony that were still pretty good. However, the seats were pretty squishy and very steep. Teeny tiny women's bathroom in the balcony area...More

Very old theater which would loose its charm if it was remodeled .Unique and off the beaten path is a small an intimate theater where you have excellent views from practically any seat.

Amusing things happen even before the play begins in this outrageously funny British farce. Physical comedy abounds, some of it is downright silly, but we found ourselves laughing from beginning to end. And I'm still laughing as I remember some of the unpredictable craziness.

A Play That Goes Wrong is an enjoyable satire that delivers laugh after laugh. The comedic delivery is spot on. My husband and I enjoyed the play; however, our teenager daughter did not appreciate the humor and silly antics. As one of the other reviewers...More

Beautiful old theatre but skip the current "comedy"...The Play that Went Wrong...silly, slapstick and anything but funny!

The play was hilarious and the theater ornate and beautiful. Although some have complained that the seats are cramped and the stairs narrow, this is unavoidable given the structure of the building. We never noticed the slightest discomfort, as we were too busy howling with...More

The laughter begins before the audience is even completely seated, as "last minute" repairs and adjustments are being made by the stage crew. Things begin going wrong then, and they continue throughout the performance. Entertainment also continues during intermission. If you want a good laugh,...More

This theater had a great play called, "The play that goes wrong." Great play. As for the theater, if you are not short, you are going to be uncomfortable with the seats. We were in the balcony with a good view but as others have...More

We had to catch one of the last 'Oh Hello' (very good show) performances on January 14th. The beautiful old Broadway theater, with its somewhat shabby but still majestic decor, is a relatively small, which allows for better views even from the not so central...More

Questions & AnswersAsk a question
The seats? Some comments indicate very tight knee room; what about hip room? Sometimes these seats are not that wide, they also have a metal divider that can pinch the hips if a heavy person. Any seating that is more roomy, both in knees and hips, either in the orchestra or balcony?

I didn't notice any roomier seats, but possibly the boxes may afford different seating.
