Broadway with Jesse Tyler Ferguson, beginning April 1, 2016. Opens April 25. Through July 31, 2016.
Five-time Emmy Award nominee Jesse Tyler Ferguson will make his highly anticipated return to Broadway as more than 40 outrageous characters in the smash hit comedy Fully Committed.
You think you've had 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.
Take a funny hit show that had a long run in a small Off Broadway theater in the late 1990s, add a charismatic television star and revive it on Broadway...Why not try it with “Fully Committed,” Becky Mode’s 1999 claws-bared satire of the high-end Manhattan restaurant business? Jesse Tyler Ferguson, best known for the ABC sitcom “Modern Family,” plays a struggling actor taking reservations in a tsunami of an establishment — and several dozen other roles, including customers calling to complain.
