Half Moon Theater's Fully Committed at the CIA

In restaurant-speak, "fully committed" refers to the none-too-popular state of a high-demand eatery that's totally booked—a state that prompts the dreaded response "We have no tables available for this evening." In Becky Mode's one-person-show, we see the aggravation that exists on the other end of the reservation line. The laugh-out-loud comedy follows a day in the life of Sam Peliczowski, a struggling-actor-turned-operator at Manhattan's hippest, most sought-after restaurant. Directed by Brendan Burke, one chameleon-like leading man takes on a cast of 40 different characters, including the maître d', the chef, and a crew of less-than-patient celebrity socialites. The new, cosmopolitan Half Moon Theatre at the Culinary Institute of America's Hyde Park campus hosts performances from January 16 to January 25. $35 general admission. (845) 234-9885.
