COMMITTED Comes to The New York Theater Festival's Winterfest

Committed, presented by The New York Theater's Winterfest, will premiere at The Hudson Guild Theater on Tuesday, February 6th at 6.15pm, with additional performances on Saturday, February 10th at 8.30pm and Sunday, February 11th at 1.00pm. Written by award winning director, Tricia Brouk (Romance and Cigarettes, "Sublets," This Dinner is Full), Committed features 11 original songs by lyricist/composer, Andrew David Sotomayor, (The Curvy Widow, Newsies).

Committed is a dark and intensely beautiful book musical that hopes to not only entertain, but also create compassion and awareness around, and ultimately de-stigmatize, mental illness. Committed stars Sarah Bierstock* (Jacques Brel Returns), Alexis Fishman* (Dusty), Heather Hamilton* (Come Fly Away), Antuan Magic Raimone* (Hamilton), Josephine Rose Roberts* (Rock of Ages), Hiroyuki Matsuura (Natasha, Pierre and the Great of 1812), Kathryn Mowat Murphy* (Fosse), and Sotomayor, as eight people who are working through the pain of their mental illnesses at an Upper East Side psychiatric clinic during the late 80's. Their poignant personal stories, told through song and dance, touch on several mental illnesses and the roller-coaster of emotions they evoke.

"Committed explores the emotional complexities of eight people struggling with mental illness. Through song and dance, we get to know and love each character. It is my hope that not only will Committed entertain, but will also start a dialogue that ultimately de-stigmatizes mental illness."- Tricia Brouk, Director
