Becky Mode's play is directed by Jason Moore.
The new Broadway production of Becky Mode's Fully Committed, starring five-time Emmy Award nominee Jesse Tyler Ferguson, will extend its run at Lyceum Theatre through July 31. It was originally scheduled to close July 24.
Ferguson plays more than 40 characters in the comedy, which follows a day in the life of Sam, a reservation-line receptionist at one of New York's trendiest restaurants. The play, inspired by characters Mode created with Mark Setlock (who originated the role), was first presented at the Vineyard Theatre in 1999, transferring to the Cherry Lane Theatre and running for nearly 700 performances.
Under the direction of Jason Moore, Fully Committed began performances Friday, April 1, and opened Monday, April 25. The limited engagement runs through July 24. This marks Ferguson's return to Broadway for the first time since originating the role of Leaf Coneybear in The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee in 2005.
