Roxy Regional Theatre Executive Director Ryan Bowie serves up 40 characters in “Fully Committed” in theotherspace, February 26th-March 6th

 

Clarskville's Roxy Regional TheatreClarksville, TN – Nearly forty characters appear in the latest offering upstairs in the Roxy Regional Theatre’s theotherspace, and all of them are played by Executive Director Ryan Bowie.

Becky Mode’s wildly funny one-man tour de force, “Fully Committed”, plays the 50-seat black-box theatre located upstairs at the Roxy for four evenings only, February 26th – March 6th.

Described by The NY Times “a richly comic affirmation of everything ever heard, or suspected, about the bad behavior that good food can inspire,” the play centers on Sam, a struggling actor who works as a reservation clerk at a chic Manhattan restaurant. Coercion, threats, bribes, histrionics — a cast of desperate callers will stop at nothing in their zeal to land a prime reservation, or the right table.

Ryan Bowie stars in "Fully Committed" in the Roxy Regional Theatre's theotherspace, February 26th through March 6th.
