From the minds that brought The Play That Goes Wrong and Peter Pan Goes Wrong to Broadway comes the hilarious new comedy by Mischief. Join the ‘Mind Mangler’ as he returns to the stage following a disappointing two-night run at the Scranton, PA Holiday Inn Conference Center, suite 2B. His new  ̶t̶w̶o̶-̶m̶a̶n̶ ̶s̶h̶o̶w̶  solo spectacular is predicted to spiral into chaos as he attempts to read your MIND…

Direct from a UK Tour including sold-out West End performances, Mind Mangler: A Night of Tragic Illusion is a guaranteed night of “laugh-filled, mind-bending silliness” (Broadway World) that will leave you gasping for breath.
