Magic Goes Wrong UK Tour has now concluded. In their biggest catastrophe to date, Mischief sent out an SOS to Penn and Teller to help.
Mischief Theatre keep coming up with new and more dangerous ways to put calamity on stages around the world. With Magic Goes Wrong they enlisted the help of Las Vegas’ royalty in the form of Penn and Teller when they couldn’t get anyone to get sawed in half (for obvious reasons!). Now following a year of “rehearsal” they are not only returning to the Vaudeville Theatre in October 2021 but they are announcing the Magic Goes Wrong UK Tour.
WHAT IS MAGIC GOES WRONG ABOUT?
Magic Goes Wrong follows a hapless gang of magicians as they stage an evening of grand illusion to raise cash for charity. As the magic turns to mayhem, accidents spiral out of control and so does their fundraising target!

MAGIC GOES WRONG – WHAT THE CRITICS SAID
