Five-Time Emmy Award Nominee
Jesse Tyler Ferguson
Returns To Broadway In
A Rare Comedy, Very Well Done.
By Becky Mode
Directed By Jason Moore
Five-time Emmy Award nominee Jesse Tyler Ferguson (“Modern Family,” The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee) will make his highly anticipated return to Broadway as more than 40 outrageous characters in the smash hit comedy, Fully Committed by Becky Mode.
At the helm of this delectably funny one-man show is Tony-nominated director Jason Moore (Pitch Perfect, Avenue Q, the upcoming Sisters starring Tina Fey and Amy Poehler). For this new production, Mode is updating the play to reflect today’s foodie and restaurant culture, which has only intensified since the piece made its debut.
You think you’re having a bad day? Meet Sam. He works the red-hot reservation line at one of New York’s trendiest restaurants, where the best food inspires the worst behavior. Coercion, petty threats, bribes, histrionics—a cast of desperate callers, all brought to life by Ferguson, will stop at nothing to land a prime reservation, or the right table in Becky Mode’s hilarious and delicious comedy. Amid the barrage, Sam has his own problems to deal with. While juggling scheming socialites, name-dropping wannabes, fickle celebrities and egomaniacal bosses, can he still manage to look out for himself?
Barbara Whitman and Patrick Catullo will produce Fully Committed.
