Fourteen years after the southeast regional premiere of Becky Mode’s Fully Committed at PURE Theatre, this frenetic and hilarious production will run for the final time on PURE’s King St. stage.

One of PURE’s most frequently requested plays (and a production that pops up at quite a few local venues), Fully Committed follows the life of Sam Peliczowski, an “out-of-work actor who mans the red-hot reservation line at Manhattan’s number-one restaurant.”

Peliczowski is played by PURE co-founder and core ensemble member Rodney Lee Rogers, who has taken on the tasking role multiple times. Rogers embodies a “cast of desperate callers who will stop at nothing in their zeal to land a prime reservation.” A challenge for the actor, and a delight for the audience, Fully Committed offers viewers an intimate glimpse at the hypothetical but rings so true life oft-forsaken reservation taker.

The play officially opens Dec. 8 and runs through Dec. 23; there is also a pay-what-you-will performance on Thurs. Dec. 7. Tickets for Fully Committed are on sale now and can be purchased at, by phone at (843) 723-4444, and at the PURE Theatre box office at 477 King Street. Pay-what-you-will tickets will be available at the door Dec. 7.
