Pantoliano drops out of ‘Mistakes’

Actor exits play due to prior commitments

Joe Pantoliano is out of the East Coast preem of Craig Wright’s one-hander, “Mistakes Were Made” at Hartford Stage “due to commitments of his film career,” according to a theater spokesman.

The play, about a legit producer, is set to run Oct. 29-Nov. 28. A replacement will be named in the next few weeks.

Pantoliano will travel to Iraq this fall to screen the documentary he produced, “No Kidding, Me Too,” and moderate conversations with U.S. soldiers about removing the stigma from mental health issues.

“Mistakes Were Made” centers on a fictional producer, Felix Artifex, grappling with the first world premiere of his long and checkered career.

The play, with Pantoliano, had a reading at the Williamstown Theater Festival in Williamstown, Mass., last month, directed by Jeremy B. Cohen, the associate director of Hartford Stage and the director of the show in Hartford.
