MISTAKES WERE MADE TO MAKE NEW YORK PREMIERE NOVEMBER 5
Craig Wright's Mistakes Were Made will make its New York premiere beginning November 5 at the Barrow Street Theater and officially open November 14.
The comedy, directed by Dexter Bullard and featuring Academy Award nominee Michael Shannon as Felix Artifex and Mierka Girten as Esther, received its world premiere at A Red Orchid Theater in 2009 with the same cast and director.
Mistakes Were Made, according to press notes, is "an hilarious, but also deeply moving character study of a man seeking redemption, but inescapably creating destruction. Felix Artifex, a B-list Off-Broadway producer, gets in way over his fast-talking head when he takes on a gargantuan epic about the French Revolution which he thinks is going to be his ticket to professional and personal reclamation. While trying to land a big star for the lead role, he uses all his powers of persuasion, seduction and intimidation to strong-arm the writer into massively rewriting his play. At the same time, he attempts to reconnect with his estranged wife and untangle himself from a mess involving sheep in a distant war-torn country."
