Taking place in the busy reservation office of New York City’s hottest restaurant, Sam, an out-of-work actor, mans the line at Manhattan’s number one restaurant while struggling to jump start her career and fulfill impending family obligations. Stopping at nothing to land a reservation, Sam deals with callers who resort to coercion, threats, bribes, and histrionics.
“This play is like the feeling you experience right after a roller coaster makes its first big drop. Non-stop speed, excitement, and laughter until you reach the end,” says director, Andrew Bradford Benson, “and the challenge of maintaining this ride rests on one actor’s shoulders as the performer plays not only Sam, but all of the other 39 characters in this show.”
Returning to Festival Theatre to tackle this role is Chloe Armao who was last seen on Festival’s stage in 2013’s productions of Crazy for You and A Midsummer Night’s Dream. Most recently she could be seen performing in Minneapolis at the Guthrie Theater as Abigail in Arthur Miller’s play, The Crucible. “Having Chloe come back to do this show is a dream,” says Benson. “She is someone with such incredible talent and passion which means her schedule is always busy with work and we feel so fortunate that she will be sharing her talents with our community again this season.”
Fully Committed will be performed in the Franklin Square Black Box, in the old Ben Franklin Building on Main St. St. Croix Falls, WI. The city of St. Croix Falls will be renovating the 1917 Civic Auditorium during Festival’s 2016 Season.
