NEW YORK - A hit comedy from London that's been called "'Fawlty Towers' meets 'Noises Off'" is heading to Broadway.

"The Play That Goes Wrong" will begin performances in March at the Lyceum Theatre in New York City. It stars the original West End cast of Matthew Cavendish, Bryony Corrigan, Rob Falconer, Dave Hearn, Henry Lewis, Charlie Russell, Jonathan Sayer, Henry Shields, Greg Tannahill and Nancy Zamit.

The play centres on the fictitious Cornley Polytechnic Drama Society attempting to stage a 1920s murder mystery — and everything that can go wrong, does. The show was written by Lewis, Sayer and Shields, all ensemble members of Mischief Theatre, an improv theatre company.

Producers include Kevin McCollum, Catherine Schreiber, Kenny Wax and filmmaker J.J. Abrams, making his theatrical and Broadway producing debut.
