Joe Pantoliano (“The Sopranos”) will star in the new Craig Wright two-hander “Mistakes Were Made” at Hartford Stage. Helmed by associate a.d. Jeremy B. Cohen, the production runs Oct. 29-Nov. 22.
The play centers on a stressed-out, micro-managing studio exec trying to sell a film whose financing is entangled with Middle East money. No casting has been announced for the play’s other role, the producer’s secretary.
Developed at Hartford Stage’s play reading festival last fall, “Mistakes” will also have a separate production at Chicago’s Red Orchid Theater prior to the Connecticut run.
Pantoliano’s previous stage work includes replacing Stanley Tucci in the Broadway revival of “Frankie and Johnny in the Clair de Lune” in 2003.
