Alley Theatre Brings Laughs for the Holidays with Fully Committed

Resident Acting Company Member, Dylan Godwin tackles over 40 characters in the all-Alley produced production directed by Alley Associate Producer and Casting Director, Brandon Weinbrenner

Playing in the Neuhaus Theatre through December 29, 2019

Arriving just in time for the holidays at the Alley, Becky Mode’s hilarious hit, Fully Committed, lets the holiday madness run wild. Performances will run through Sunday, December 29.


This hilarious and delicious comedy features more than 40 characters that come to life in the hands of one man.

Sam works the reservation line at one of New York’s hottest restaurants, where the best food inspires the worst behavior. Coercion, threats, and bribes from a cast of desperate callers, prove they will stop at nothing to land a prime reservation or the right table. While juggling scheming socialites, name‐dropping wannabes, fickle celebrities, and egomaniacal bosses, can he still manage to get home for the holidays?

“In true holiday spirit, I am overjoyed to bring Fully Committed to the Neuhaus Theatre during the most festive time of year!”, Weinbrenner said. “There’s no actor more equipped to tackle 40 plus characters with 40 plus voices than our beloved Dylan Godwin. He and I have been friends and collaborators for years, but this will be my first time directing him. I can’t wait for Houston to see Dylan bring Becky Mode’s timeless, holiday one-man tour-de-force to life!”
