Peter Pan Goes Wrong, the sequel to the international hit The Play That Goes Wrong, will open on Broadway this spring at the Ethel Barrymore Theatre. Performances are set to begin March 17, with opening night scheduled for April 19.

Co-written by Mischief Theatre artistic directors and Goes Wrong series creators Henry Lewis, Jonathan Sayer, and Henry Shields, the comedy finds the Cornley Drama Society back at it, this time attempting to present J.M. Barrie's Peter Pan amid technical glitches, flying mishaps, and cast disputes.

The production will star original Play That Goes Wrong cast members Lewis, Sayer, Shields, Charlie Russell, Greg Tannahill, and Nancy Zamit, with Chris Leask and Ellie Morris rounding out the company.

Peter Pan Goes Wrong is directed by Adam Meggido, with set designs by Simon Scullion, costumes by Roberto Surace, lighting by Matt Haskins, sound by Ella Wahlström, and music by Richard Baker and Rob Falconer.

The play premiered as a holiday season offering in 2013 at the Pleasance Theatre in London. It had multiple West End engagements and was adapted as an hourlong BBC special in 2016. Most recently, it had its North American premiere at the Citadel Theatre in Canada in 2022.
