If you’ve ever dreamed of seeing “Downton Abbey” taken over by Monty Python, then you have some very strange dreams. AND, you’ll love THE PLAY THAT GOES WRONG, the Olivier Award-winning comedy direct from London’s West End. Welcome to opening night of the Cornley Polytechnic Drama Society’s newest production, The Murder at Haversham Manor. This 1920s whodunit has everything you never wanted in a Broadway show — a ramshackle set, a leading lady with a concussion, and a corpse that can’t play dead. It’s a classic murder mystery… and it’s a mystery how it ever got to Broadway! This sidesplitting show-within-a-show is presented by the producer of Avenue Q and Something Rotten! along with acclaimed film producer J.J. Abrams (“Lost,” Star Wars: The Force Awakens), who we can only assume lost a bet. Get tickets now — missing it would be a total catastrophe!

Our group bought some last-minute tix for the play here, and we really enjoyed the production. The building is quite old - opening in 1903 - and it has that old theatre feel to it. The opulent ceilings, the tiny seats, the steep staircases -...More

I didn't notice any roomier seats, but possibly the boxes may afford different seating.
