Get Committed!



THREE PERFORMANCES LEFT!
MARCH 17,18 & 19
All shows at 8:30pm
Tickets: $15


This devastatingly funny show follows a day in the life of Sam Peliczowski, an out-of-work actor who mans the red-hot reservation line at New York's number-one restaurant. From a high class housewife, to Naomi Campbell's light in the loafer assistant and many more in this cast of desperate callers who will stop at nothing to land a prime reservation, or the right table. Amid the insanity, Sam's got his own needs to contend with—his recently widowed dad wants him home for Christmas, and he's up for a choice part at Lincoln Center. While juggling scheming socialites, name-dropping wannabes, fickle celebrities and egomaniacal bosses, can he manage to look out for himself? Fully Committed boasts a cast of 40 all played by one man!

Shea Coffman as Sam Peliczowski
Directed by Fishtank Curator, Heidi Van
