This devastatingly funny comedy, "Fully Committed," follows a day in the life of Sam Callahan, an out-of-work actor who mans the red-hot reservation line at Manhattan’s number-one restaurant. Coercion, threats, bribes, histrionics— desperate callers will stop at nothing to land a prime reservation, or the right table. Amid the barrage, Sam’s got his own needs to contend with—his recently widowed dad wants him home for Christmas, and he’s up for a choice part at Lincoln Center. While juggling scheming socialites, name-dropping wannabes, fickle celebrities and egomaniacal bosses, can he manage to look out for himself?
Fully Committed is performed by a cast of one, Paul Urriola, who plays the part of over forty roles in this outrageous comedy. click here for tickets!
"The one to beat is the least likely looking — the supremely confident William Barfee (pronounced Bar-fait, if you please), played to absolute perfection by Paul Urriola"
-Borak, Jeffrey. "The audience wins at Theater Barn's 'Spelling Bee'" The Berkshire Eagle 28 August 2018 : The Berkshire Eagle
"As the oddball character physically and vocally, Barfèe is played by Paul Urriola, who gives even his character’s nastiness a certain quality of aggressive charm. He gets to sing the best song in the score, “Magic Foot,” and he does a superb job with it"
-Bergman, J. Peter. "THEATRE REVIEW: the Theater Barn’s ‘Spelling Bee’ is lively, entrancing, plays perfectly." The Berkshire Edge 28 August 2018 ; The Berkshire Edge
"Paul Urriola, as Nicely-Nicely Johnson, is the comic relief throughout and his “Sit Down, You’re Rockin’ the Boat” in Act II is one of the best songs in the entire production; his energy and the choreography make for a fantastic spectacle"
-Durant, Amy. "'Guys and Dolls' is an end-of-summer delight." The Alt 28 August 2017: The Alt
"Paul Urriola, as Nicely-Nicely, grabs the moves and the notes and the energy and knocks our socks—and perhaps other items of our accoutrement—into the atmosphere. It’s theater"
-Bergman, J. Peter. "And if I Were a Bell I'd Be Ringing." Berkshire Bright Focus 27 August 2017 : Berkshire Bright Focus
