    The Play That Goes Wrong

    "Broadway’s funniest and longest running," they tell us of this play-about-a-play. Welcome to opening night of The Murder at Haversham Manor, in which things go from bad to disastrous – with an unconscious leading lady, a corpse that can’t play dead, and actors who trip over everything (including their lines). This hilarious spectacle at the Bass has a professional cast touring from Broadway – because, yup, it takes mighty big skills to pretend to fuck things up this badly.
    Oct. 23-28. Tue.-Fri., 8pm; Sat., 2 & 8pm; Sun., 1 & 7pm. $25 and up.
