Anything is fair game in the priceless comedy “The Play That Goes Wrong,” from people forgetting their lines, the set falling apart even before the show starts, or a plot twist and you’ll enjoy every moment of it. “The Play That Goes Wrong” takes center stage at the beautiful Emerson Colonial Theatre in Boston, as the hilarious Broadway comedy embarks on its official Boston tour.

“The Play That Goes Wrong” is essentially a play within a play, where the characters act as though they are putting on the play, “The Murder at Haversham Manor,” whereas in reality they are performing “The Play That Goes Wrong.” It’s a murder-mystery like you’ve never seen before.

If all goes right, “The Play That Goes Wrong” will be in Boston at the Emerson Colonial Theatre through Nov. 18, 2018.

The play itself takes place in the 1920s when Chris Bean, portrayed by Evan Alexander Smith, who plays the inspector, works with the rest of the cast to find out who murdered one of the characters — Jonathan, played by Yaegel T. Welch — though, the mystery is the last thing they need to worry about.

This is the type of show where you can forget about everything you have going on in your life for 2 1/2 hours and not feel bad about it. Despite the commotion that persists onstage, you get to relax while enjoying the humor that ensues. I quite literally don’t think any one minute went by when the audience was not full of laughter as the commitment of the cast kept the energy alive. In addition to what the script says, the actors have a chance to show their improv skills by interacting directly with the audience members in their own way.

Be sure to see this playful show at Emerson Colonial Theatre in Boston before it closes on Nov. 18!
