Fully Committed, a tour de force, one-man comedy by Becky Mode stars Jason Graae, and is directed by Glenn Casale. Presented for the new San Fernando Playhouse Series at the El Portal Theatre.
This Off Broadway hit is a frenetic trip through a fictional, extremely fashionable Upper East Side eatery. Playing all 40-plus characters in the play, Graae, who's theatre background includes Broadway, Off Broadway, Regional Theatre and National Tours is perfectly cast in the role of central character, Sam -reservationist/actor.
All of the other characters appear via phone calls to the reservation line or through the intercom from upstairs in the restaurant itself. Through the course of the evening, we meet Sam's father, a likeable guy from South Bend; the temperamental chef; Jean-Claude, the snooty Maitre D'; Naomi Campbell's annoying (but funny) assistant; and several powerful New York types.
