About Mind Mangler: A Night of Tragic Illusion

From the MINDS that brought The Play That Goes Wrong and Peter Pan Goes Wrong to Broadway comes a hilarious new Goes Wrong comedy by Mischief!

Join the Mind Mangler as he returns to the stage following a disappointing two-night run at the Scranton, PA Holiday Inn conference center, suite 2b. His new t̶w̶o̶-̶m̶a̶n̶ s̶h̶o̶w̶ solo spectacular is predicted to spiral into chaos as he attempts to read your MIND...

Direct from sold-out West End performances, Mind Mangler: A Night of Tragic Illusion is “breathlessly funny and packed with nonstop laughs!” (TheaterMania).

Great acting, Funny, Entertaining, Delightful, Clever

See it if Fun & hilarious evening with an illusionist & his team. Loads of laughter.

Don’t see it if This show is not for young children given the sprinkles of profanity & some adult content.

Clever, Entertaining, Funny

See it if MM interacts w the audience brilliantly w magic, projections & props.If u liked the Goes Wrong flair u'll enjoy MM as well. A fun night out.

Don’t see it if Some of the language is unsuitable for children. Uneven; the antics seem to recede & dissolve in the 2nd act; yet, overall worth your time.

Clever, Entertaining, Hilarious, Great acting, Great writing

See it if you'd enjoy some funny bumbled illusions with a quick responding character and a delightful sidekick who also pull off 2 great reveals.

Don’t see it if you are looking for a full illusion show - this is a "gone wrong" production that may be too silly for some.

More information about Mind Mangler: A Night of Tragic Illusion

Mind Mangler premiered at the 2022 Edinburgh Fringe Festival in Scotland, and a 2023 U.K. tour followed. Lewis and Sayer also starred in those productions of the show, which they co-wrote with fellow Mischief co-founder Henry Shields.

The trio formed Mischief Theatre Company while students at the London Academy of Music and Dramatic Art. They also created the global hits The Play That Goes Wrong and Peter Pan Goes Wrong. In fact, all three shows hit New York in 2023: Peter Pan Goes Wrong had a five-month Broadway premiere in the spring, and The Play That Goes Wrong has played in New York since 2019. It currently runs at New World Stages, which also hosts Mind Mangler off Broadway.

Mischief specializes in over-the-top, slapstick comedies about theatrical mishaps. The Play That Goes Wrong and Peter Pan Goes Wrong both feature an amateur theatre troupe putting on a production that, well, goes wrong in every way imaginable.

What to watch for

  • Abracadabra! Lewis, Sayer, and Shields co-created the character of the Mind Mangler with two legendary magicians: Penn and Teller.
  • The character first appeared in Mischief's play Magic Goes Wrong (which, with Penn and Teller's help, included actual stage magic) before he got his own show.
  • The Off-Broadway show has a magic consultant, Ben Hart, to help craft some cool illusions for the audience. The Mind Mangler might not be good at mind-reading, but anything can happen...
  • The Mischief co-founders regularly star in their own shows. Sayer, Lewis, and Shields all led the original London and Broadway casts of The Play That Goes Wrong and Peter Pan Goes Wrong, as well as Magic Goes Wrong in London.
  • Mind Mangler isn't part of Mischief's official Goes Wrong series, but you can still expect plenty of hilarious mishaps.
