Jesse Tyler Ferguson to return to Broadway next spring

November 16, 2015

NEW YORK (AP) — Jesse Tyler Ferguson is heading back to Broadway, but not in just one role. Try about 40.

The “Modern Family” star has signed up for the one-man comedy “Fully Committed” this spring at the Lyceum Theatre.

Ferguson will play an aspiring actor and haggard reservations clerk at a snooty, upscale New York City restaurant who must switch from character to character as he plays his boss, colleagues and pompous patrons scrambling to get a table.

Playwright Becky Mode has updated her script to reflect the explosion in foodie snobbery since the play first premiered off-Broadway in 1999. The show begins April 2 and opening night is April 25.

The producers, Barbara Whitman and Patrick Catullo, also brought “The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee” to Broadway, which starred Ferguson.
