The Play That Goes Wrong, a comedy about an amateur production of a murder mystery that goes hopelessly awry, begins the next chapter in its rags-to-riches journey as it starts preview performances at Broadway's Lyceum Theatre on March 9.

The Olivier-winning comedy, which began in a pub as a fringe production, will officially open April 2. The Broadway production stars the original West End cast: Matthew Cavendish, Bryony Corrigan, Rob Falconer, Dave Hearn, Henry Lewis, Charlie Russell, Jonathan Sayer, Henry Shields, Greg Tannahill, and Nancy Zamit.

Co-written by Mischief Theatre company members Lewis, Sayer, and Shields, The Play That Goes Wrong is produced by J. J. Abrams, Kevin McCollum, Kenny Wax, Stage Presence Ltd., and Catherine Schreiber. Abrams, best known as director of blockbuster films such as Star Wars: The Force Awakens, makes his Broadway producing debut with this show.

The Play That Goes Wrong is directed by Mark Bell and features set design by Nigel Hook, lighting design by Ric Mountjoy, sound design by Andy Johnson, and costume design by Roberto Surace.
