Press Roundup: THE PLAY THAT GOES WRONG

Play That Goes Wrong 1.jpg

“…Everyone is excellent, with strong comic timing and deliciously over-the-top performances, with the standouts being Keyloun and Rapson for their impressive physical comedy, McGloin for his delightful self-satisfied mugging, Zes for his expertly inept use of language as well as physicality, and especially Cheung for her increasingly determined, delightfully deadpan turn as stage manager and last-minute understudy…”
Snoop’s Theatre Thoughts

“…[There’s] Max Bennett as Cecil Haversham/the gardener (Matthew McGloin), whose apparent dance background finds its way into his funnily dramatic characters…Here it must be noted that it takes great skill and focus for good actors like these to pretend to perform so poorly. It's obvious they are having the time of their lives, even as they are delivering the best worst performance ever. It is impossible to single anyone out, because this ensemble works in such flawless collaboration with one another to create the biggest onstage mess you've likely ever seen. They are all equally as silly, outrageous, and nonsensical, and all prompt repeated out-loud giggles…”
Broadway World

“…Matthew McGloin is hilarious as the overly eager Max Bennett, the self-impressed actor who is exhilarated with the audience’s reception of his wildly gesticulating onstage antics as both Cecil and a crusty gardener…”
Ladue News

“…To add to the hilarity, Charles’ brother Cecil (Matthew McGloin) appears to think he’s in a musical as he bounces around the stage emphasizing every speech with leg kicks and overreaching hand motions. Of course it doesn’t help that he’s dressed like a 20’s preppie tennis player. Later in the play he appears as Arthur the Gardener and makes no pretense to be anything but the actor playing both roles, even to the point of trying to stick his fake sideburns (which have fallen off) as a mustache on Charles’ intended, Florence Colleymoore…”
Stage Door St. Louis

“…The cast of 8 tumble and stumble their way through the story and most of their lines. By the end of the evening, the laugh-out-loud lunacy and non-stop comedy will send you home with a smile on your face…The cast is prepared for the challenging task of making the comicality and physical gags work…”
