Review: The Play That Goes Wrong

If ever a production lived up to it’s title, it would definitely be The Play That Goes Wrong! This raucous, madcap comedy had not only me, but my teenage daughter belly laughing & gasping out loud right from the start, and the laughs only got louder as the show went on.
