Creative Team Announced for Broadway's Fully Committed, With Jesse Tyler Ferguson
The full creative team has been announced for the Broadway premiere of Becky Mode's solo comedy, Fully Committed. Helmed by Pitch Perfect and Avenue Q director Jason Moore, the production will star five-time Modern Family Emmy nominee Jesse Tyler Ferguson.
The creative team will be made up of Derek McLane (scenic design), Sarah Laux (costume design), Ben Stanton (lighting design), and Jill BC Du Boff (sound design).
Ferguson will play 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.
Fully Committed begins performances Saturday, April 2, and opens 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. Barbara Whitman and Patrick Catullo serve as producers.
