Jerry Mayer’s Mistakes Were Made: coulda-woulda-shoulda

Jerry Mayer’s Mistakes Were Made: coulda-woulda-shoulda“You won’t want to miss this world premiere!” (Ingrid Wilmot, Will Call). “RECOMMENDED!” This is a play you can’t help but enjoy!” (Carol Kaufman Segal’s Culture Corner). It’s the return of renowned playwright Jerry Mayer's 10th play, reuniting Mayer with acclaimed director Chris DeCarlo - schadenfreude at its finest as you gleefully enjoy other people's mistakes (all of them all too true).

NOBODY'S PERFECT! But mistakes can be fixed, between husbands and wives, girlfriends and boyfriends, fathers and sons. This world premiere comedy will have you laughing, crying, and racing to fix that one mistake that's been gnawing at you for years! “Fun! Entertaining! This show has many laugh-out-loud moments. Definitely a throwback to comedies that have punch lines that aren’t dependent on foul or shocking language.” Sue Pascoe, Circling the News.

“Directed by Chris DeCarlo with his usual aplomb…‘Mistakes Were Made’ showcases six talented actors bringing Mayer’s wonderfully crotchety comedy to life,” says Michael Aushenker of the Palisadian Post. The stellar cast includes Gregg Berger (Grimlock in the G1Transformers franchise Alita: Battle Angel Police Academy: Mission to Moscow) Rachel Galper (A Love Affair, a DeLUSIONAL affair, Turning Thirty) Kyle T. Heffner (Facts of Life, Seinfeld [Bizarro George], Curb Your Enthusiasm, Sense8) Christine Joëlle* (Dominion, Dandelion Charma, King & Maxwell, DELUSION) Paul Linke (Parenthood, K-PAX, CHiPs, Judging Amy the "Time" plays - Time Flies When You're Alive [HBO, Cable Ace Award nomination], Life After Time, Father Time) and Beau Smith (Octopi Wall Street, The Tempest, Good People).

Set, Lights and Video design by James Cooper. Costumes by award-winning designer Ashley Hayes. Technical Director George J Vennes III. Video Consultant Fritz Davis.
