Theatre Horizon presents: FULLY COMMITTED

Fully Committed
MAY 12-JUN 5, 2016

“…immensely entertaining, a richly comic affirmation of everything I’ve ever heard, or suspected, about the bad behavior that good food can inspire.”
—THE NEW YORK TIMES

Do you ever feel like the only sane person in the room? Sam does. A regular guy working at New York’s hottest restaurant, Sam contends with a circus of co-workers and millionaires who all want one thing from him—a place at the table. Comic daredevil Michael Doherty, most recently seen here as Jack in last season’s smash hit Into the Woods, plays all 40 roles in this non-stop, side-splitting ride.
