    A Producer, His Telephone and Desperation

    Charles Isherwood

    November 15, 2010: A satisfyingly whole play is not easily constructed from half of a conversation, even when an actor as formidably talented as Michael Shannon is the man onstage with the phone surgically attached to his ear.

    A Perfect Michael Shannon in Mistakes Were Made

    Scott Brown

    November 15, 2010: "I'm just a producer," pleads Felix Artifex, producer (played by Michael Shannon, genius). "I'm just someone who tries to do what's right for other people." And with this passionately insincere declaration of totally insupportable good intentions, we're off. Craig Wright's Mistakes Were Made is 90 furious, fulminating, very funny minutes of American hucksterism in extremis, a symphonic one-man meltdown that pits Shannon's rapidly unraveling old-school deal-maker, his office phone affixed to his face like a respirator, against nine flickering lines of incoming chaos.

    Mistakes Were Made

    David Gordon

    November 12, 2010: Mel Brooks lied. Being a producer doesn't involve lunch at Sardi's every day. Sometimes, it's just a few slices of ham on a croissant in your cluttered office while you're screaming at people on the telephone.

    Let Them Buy Premium Tickets

    Mark Peikert

    November 15, 2010: Casual fans of the theater will no doubt find amusing Mistakes Were Made, Craig Wright’s tortured and torturous new comedy about a theater producer. Producer Felix Artifex (who has a poster of his revival of Cat on a Hot Tin Roof, starring Roseanne Barr and Erik Estrada, hanging on a wall) takes calls and tries to force a reluctant playwright to create an entirely new plot for his French Revolution drama to satisfy an interested movie star.

    You'll want to catch 'Mistakes'

    Frank Scheck

    November 16, 2010: Michael Shannon fans often have to settle for seeing him in small doses: his brief, Oscar-nominated turn in "Revolutionary Road," his supporting role in HBO's "Boardwalk Empire."
