The producers of Broadway’s Peter Pan Goes Wrong, the international sensation from Mischief, today announced that the show has been extended for another two weeks through July 23 at the Ethel Barrymore Theatre (243 W. 47 St.) after which it packs up and goes to Los Angeles to play the Ahmanson Theatre from August 8 – September 10.

The show’s writers, Henry Lewis, Jonathan Sayer, and Henry Shields, said, “We are having an absolutely terrific time sharing our very silly take on Peter Pan with New York audiences and are thrilled to be extending on Broadway because we still have several pizza joints left to try.”
The production opened on Broadway on April 19 and was called “Expertly executed Broadway mayhem!” by Variety, “A total blast!” by Chris Jones at the Chicago Tribune, and “A magical comedy disaster!” by The Observer.
This awards season, Peter Pan Goes Wrong has been nominated for three Outer Critics Circle Awards, three Drama Desk Awards, and a Drama League Award.
The cast of Peter Pan Goes Wrong features Matthew Cavendish as Max, Bianca Horn as Gill, Harry Kershaw as Francis, Chris Leask as Trevor, Henry Lewis as Robert, Ellie Morris as Lucy, Charlie Russell as Sandra, Jonathan Sayer as Dennis, Henry Shields as Chris, Greg Tannahill as Jonathan, and Nancy Zamit as Annie. Ryan Vincent Anderson, Stephen James Anthony, and Brenann Stacker complete the company.
Co-written by Mischief company members Henry Lewis, Jonathan Sayer, and Henry Shields, Peter Pan Goes Wrong is a highly physical comedy packed with finely tuned and inspired slapstick, delivered with split-second timing and ambitious daring. The play sees the ‘Cornley Drama Society’ back on stage battling technical hitches, flying mishaps, and cast disputes as they attempt to present J.M Barrie’s much-loved tale. But will they ever make it to Neverland?
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, original music by Richard Baker and Rob Falconer and wig/hair & make-up design by Tommy Kurzman.
