NORWALK, CT – Matt Densky, a Monroe native, will play the starring role in “Fully Committed,” a one-man comedy at the Music Theatre of Connecticut MainStage, with shows scheduled from Sept. 11 to 27. There will be 8 p.m. performances on Fridays and Saturdays, with earlier 2 p.m. shows on Saturdays and Sundays.
“Fully Committed” follows a day in the life of Sam Peliczowski, an out-of-work actor who mans the red-hot reservation line at Manhattan’s number-one restaurant.
“Fully Committed” is a devastatingly funny one act full of coercion, threats, bribes, and histrionics as a cast of desperate callers will stop at nothing in their zeal to land a prime reservation, or the right table, according to the news release.
Amid the barrage, employee, Sam, has got his own needs to contend with — his recently widowed dad wants him home for Christmas, and he’s up for a choice part at Lincoln Center. While juggling scheming socialites, name-dropping wannabes, fickle celebrities and egomaniacal bosses, can he manage to look out for himself?
This production is directed by Kevin Connors with stage manager Jim Schilling. The creative team includes scenic design by Jessie Lizotte, lighting design by RJ Romeo, and costume design by Diane Vanderkroef.
In person ticket prices range from $35 to $65. Live Stream tickets are $25. To purchase tickets online, visit www.musictheatreofct.com/fullycommitted or call the box office at 203-454-3883. MTC MainStage is located at 509 Westport Ave. in Norwalk.
