Starry Night's Michael Shulman, who appeared in the original 1990 production of Stephen Sondheim's ASSASSINS at Playwrights Horizons, paid tribute to the Broadway legend in a rousing rendition of "Sunday" from SUNDAY IN THE PARK WITH GEORGE at Lincoln Center's Avery Fisher Hall. Shulman joined 287 past and present Sondheim alumni in the evening's climax that brought tears to the composer's eyes.

The concert, directed for stage and television by Lonny Price in March 2010, aired on PBS and is now available on DVD/BluRay.

Oscar nominee Michael Shannon stars as an Off-Broadway producer in the New York City premiere of Craig Wright's new comedy MISTAKES WERE MADE. The play opened Nov. 14 after beginning previews on Nov. 5. Mistakes Were Made is directed by Dexter Bullard, and also features Mierka Girten opposite Shannon. 

Mistakes Were Made is billed as a character study "of a man seeking redemption, but inescapably creating destruction." Felix 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."

Starry Night Entertainment associate produces what New York Magazine calls "a glorious absurdist showpiece." The New York Times says "Michael Shannon is excellent!" and Backstage declares "it's explosively funny! Mistakes Were Made is 100 minutes of high-octane bliss with a tour de force turn from Michael Shannon. I can't remember the last time I laughed so hard at the theatre. Supremely enjoyable!"
