It was announced today that Ilana Levine, host of the popular podcast Little Known Facts, will host a Q&A discussion following the April 11 matinee performance of The Play That Goes Wrong at Broadway's Lyceum Theatre. Ticketed audience members will be invited to stay for the discussion, which will begin shortly after the matinee ends at 4pm.

Levine is best known to Broadway musical theater fans for her comedic turn as Lucy Van Pelt in the revival of You're a Good Man Charlie Brown. She has also starred in the Broadway productions of Jake's Women, Wrong Mountain, and The Last Night of Ballyhoo. Her weekly podcast Little Known Facts features intimate and hilarious conversations with today's most successful artists working in film, television, and on Broadway.

Written by Mischief Theatre company members Henry Lewis, Jonathan Sayer, and Henry Shields, The Play That Goes Wrong is a riotous comedy about the theater. The play introduces the Cornley University Drama Society, who are attempting to put on a 1920s murder mystery, but as the title suggests, everything that can go wrong…does, as the accident-prone thespians battle on against all odds to get to their final curtain call.

The Broadway cast currently stars Ashley Bryant as Annie, Clifton Duncan as Robert, Mark Evans as Chris, Jonathan Fielding as Jonathan, Alex Mandell as Max, Amelia McClain as Sandra, Harrison Unger as Dennis, and Akron Watson as Trevor. The company also features Preston Truman Boyd, Ned Noyes, Ashley Reyes, and Katie Sexton.

The 2015 Olivier Award winner for Best New Comedy, The Play That Goes Wrong is now in its fourth year in the West End. It officially opened its Broadway transfer on April 2, 2017.
