NEW YORK -- Michael Shannon, and the wonderful vehicle playwright Craig Wright wrote, continues to garner much deserved attention including the recent full page profile The New York Times did on the Oscar nominated actor from Chicago and the play he stars in, MISTAKES WERE MADE, currently running through February 27, 2011 at the Barrow Street Theatre.

The Times describes his performance, in which he plays a theater producer cajoling, begging, seducing and threatening off-stage cohorts in an effort to mount a new play about the French revolution on Broadway, as "hilarious, tender and graceful."  His bravado, tour de force performance is one of the funniest, and showiest, you'll see on stage this, or any season.
