Enjoy schadenfreude at its finest as you safely experience other people's mistakes (all of them all too true.) in the world premiere of Jerry Mayer's latest play. Continuing Santa Monica Playhouse's celebration of Playwright Mayer's long and illustrious career (“One of the funniest writers alive!” The Good Life), the Playhouse production reunites Mayer with acclaimed veteran (and frequent Mayer) director Chris DeCarlo (“A masterful director!” Theatre Scene).

NOBODY'S PERFECT! But mistakes can be fixed, between husbands and wives, girlfriends and boyfriends, fathers and sons. This world premiere romantic comedy will have you laughing, crying, and racing to fix that one mistake that's been gnawing at you for years! ​From the internationally acclaimed team that brought you Almost Perfect, Aspirin & ELEPHANTS and A Love Affair, Mistakes Were Made features a stellar cast that includes: Gregg Berger (Grimlock in the G1Transformers franchise; Alita: Battle Angel); Matt Fowler (Game of Thrones: The Musical, Legend Quest [Netflix]); Rachel Galper (A Love Affair, Love and Politics); Kyle T. Heffner (Facts of Life, Seinfeld [Bizarro George], Sense8); Peter Jason (Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom, NCIS, Longmire); Christine Joëlle* (Dominion, Dandelion Charma, DELUSION); Paul Linke (Parenthood, K-PAX, CHiPs, Time Flies When You're Alive). Low-price previews April 7 - May 4th. Opens May 5 and playing thorough September 28, 2019.

"Each of the men reveals a story of late in life regret, redeemed by the power of love that could only come from truth and not some fragment of a playwright’s fictional story-beat cleverness. More than once, the audience was either in tears or stiffening the air with tense communal recognition."

"Certainly, all of us can think of mistakes we made which caused unseen, or perhaps even planned, problems for our friends and/or family members. And as we age, it seems that when we recognize the need to make amends to set things right in our own lives, we need to do that before it's too late. But what if trying to make amends causes even more problems when the truth is revealed, while causing laughs galore at the foibles of all the players? Such is the case in the world premiere of Jerry Mayer's tenth play, MISTAKES WERE MADE - Coulda-Woulda-Shoulda, at the Santa Monica Playhouse. In fact, the comedy has been so popular with audiences, it has been extended through the end of September!"

"If you’re ready for some poignant chuckles about the foibles and fancies of three men who didn’t know better then – but maybe do now, then MISTAKES WERE MADE is tailor-crafted just for you. Get ready to laugh as some of their thoughts reach out and touch your heart."

"It’s clear Mayer has not regressed and his funny bone is still honed and polished. His dialogue sparkles with wit and affects us like a dose of uppers on a gloomy day. Jerry, live and be well! (I’m knocking on wood!"

"For a single act production, this show is simple yet sweet. There are no real “mistakes” seen here. It could ask the time tested question if one has a chance to do their life all over again, would it be done in the same way. The answer is to perform all of the mistakes a lot sooner! Whatever the case, this show is a keeper, and that's soon enough!"
