Photo Flash: First Look at Michael Mendelson in Artists Rep's MISTAKES WERE MADE
Michael Mendelson plays the lead role of Felix Artifex in Artists Rep's production of MISTAKES WERE MADE. Artistic Director Dámaso Rodriguez directs Mendelson and guides the show to opening as the production's Associate Director. The play will open September 28. BroadwayWorld has a first look below!
Artists Rep is proud to present the explosive Mistakes Were Made by the prolific stage and television writer Craig Wright, as the second show of their 2013/14 season. Despite the recent change in casting, and Rodriguez added as Associate Director in these final stages of the production process, this show marks Michael Mendelson's Artists Rep directorial debut. Mendelson is a longtime Resident Artist and a newly designated Artistic Associate with the theatre.
In Mistakes Were Made, the lead character, Felix, on stage for the entire one-act show, is a NYC theatre producer who is about to blow a gasket. He's jabbing at the hold button as he negotiates with a playwright, a movie star, a deep-pockets funder and an agent, all while mediating a Middle East crisis (involving sheep and militant rebels). This non-stop, fast-talking chameleon is bound for no good. With his overweight pet fish, Denise, as his only confidant and the weight of the world on his shoulders, the stage is set for a high-speed comedic train wreck of a tale.
Mistakes Were Made by Craig Wright, is directed by Michael Mendelson and features Mendelson, Lucy Paschall, and Liz Ghiz. The show runs tonight, Sept. 24 - Oct. 27, 2013. Preview performances September 24-26; Opening Night is Saturday, September 28; Show runs Wednesday through Sunday at 7:30pm, Sunday at 2pm. Venue: Artists Repertory Theatre - Morrison Stage (15th and Morrison St.). Tickets: $25-$55; Box Office: 503.241.1278 orwww.artistsrep.org.
