The Theater Project, a 17-year old Central New Jersey-based professional theater company, will present its fall production, the zany Fully Committed, at the New Jersey Arts Incubator at the Essex Green Shopping Center on Prospect Avenue in West Orange, NJ.
This hysterical, fast-paced show follows a day in the life of Sam Peliczowski, an out-of-work actress who handles the red-hot reservation line at Manhattan's number-one restaurant. She is certainly in demand—not for acting roles, but for prime reservations at the right table. As she juggles scheming socialites, name-dropping wannabes, fickle celebrities and egomaniacal bosses, Sam tries to sort out her own life and career. Sam—along with the nearly 40 demanding characters in Fully Committed—are all portrayed by one actress, Jenelle Sosa of Newark (above).
This hilarious comedy is about being in the right place at the right time, and heroine Sam learns that sometimes it's just best to hang up the phone.
The New York Times hailed a previous production of Fully Committed, calling it "…immensely entertaining, a richly comic affirmation of everything I've ever heard, or suspected, about the bad behavior that good food can inspire." Time Out New York called the production "hilarious and touching, galloping along at a swift, almost frantic pace."
The Theater Project believes that a more thoughtful, inspired and creative community can be stimulated by its unique brand of professional, high-quality and theatrical programming. It is dedicated to the presentation of powerful and relevant productions that explore contemporary values and topic issues in an intimate and engaging setting.
