BRILLIANT SHOW THAT HAD US IN FITS OF LAUGHTER

We saw this on a Sunday afternoon and it made our weekend. As with the play that goes wrong, cast members set things up by going out into the audience ahead of the show, in this case looking for a lost dove. One child was having lots of fun going round with a net on a stick cooing to try to get the lost bird to come to him. The show has lots of variety and some really good magic effects. Best of all, the audience had a great time which makes the whole experience amazing and the show one to remember. We hope to get the chance to see it again.

LOTS OF LAUGHS - AND SOME REAL MAGIC

We loved last night's performance - in a packed Vaudeville Theatre. The second half was stronger than the first, but nevertheless it started with a delightful trick and finished with a brilliant piece of misdirection that had the people around us jumping out of their seats. Henry Lewis is the standout performer as the Mind Mangler. It didn't matter if he could do magic or not - but it turned out in the end that he could. Highly recommended as a way of beating the January blues ... if you can get a seat.

MAGIC GOES WRONG REVIEW - VAUDEVILLE

Mischief’ weakest effort thus far...hit and miss, no belly laughs. Very much a work in progress....

MAGIC WENT WRONG

Very disappointing even for MISCHIEF Theatre enthusiasts. Weak central theme, genuinely amateurish Very slow, contrived and not at all amusing. The format has run out of steam here. ... Maybe the collaboration is the problem.

MAGIC GOES WRONG - AWFUL

What a patronising and corny load of rubbish. We were squashed into tiny seats in the misnamed Grand Circle. I've no idea what Penn and Teller contributed to this - possibly just getting their famous mates to do 'live' video links that were just as awful as all the rest of this drivel. Felt like watching a school production.

TERRIBLE SHOW MAGIC GOES WRONG

This was so disappointing to watch. Have seen the previous two shows and they were good. Would not recommend
