Penn and Teller create Magic Goes Wrong with Mischief Theatre

The new comedy will be the second production in the company's year-long residency at the Vaudeville Theatre

Magic Goes Wrong

Magicians Penn and Teller are to team up with British theatre company Mischief on a brand new comedy.

Magic Goes Wrong is part of the company's year-long residency at the Vaudeville Theatre which opens with Groan Ups in September this year.

Magic Goes Wrong is the second in three productions due to open at the venue, with the third yet to be announced. Tickets for the show will go on sale on Sunday 10 March.

Teller said: "When our own magic has gone wrong, we were miserable, but when it's somebody else, it's hilarious, so this seems like the perfect project for Mischief and us. We're huge fans of theirs, so collaborating with them was a privilege and an astonishment. Any idea we'd pitch them, right on the spot they'd turn it around and make us double over laughing. We're very proud of the results and hope you enjoy the show."

The piece will be written by Penn Jillette, Henry Lewis, Jonathan Sayer, Henry Shields and Teller and will be directed by Adam Meggido. The show runs from 14 December with an opening night on 8 January.
