Jesse Tyler Ferguson ("Modern Family," The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee) makes his highly anticipated return to Broadway taking on 40 OUTRAGEOUS characters in the smash hit comedy, FULLY COMMITTED. But how would the five-time Emmy Award nominee do at impersonating characters from his ABC comedy MODERN FAMILY? PEOPLE puts him to the test below!

Written by Becky Mode, directed by Tony nominee Jason Moore (Avenue Q, Pitch Perfect, Sisters), Fully Committed began performances on April 1 and officially opened on Monday, April 25, 2016 on Broadway at the Lyceum Theatre. This is a strictly limited engagement through July 24, 2016.

You think you're having a bad day? Meet Sam (Ferguson). He works the red-hot reservation line at one of New York's trendiest restaurants, where the best food inspires the worst behavior. Coercion, petty threats, bribes, histrionics-a cast of desperate callers, all brought to life by Ferguson, will stop at nothing to land a prime reservation, or the right table in Becky Mode's hilarious and delicious comedy. Amid the barrage, Sam has his own problems to deal with. While juggling scheming socialites, name-dropping wannabes, fickle celebrities and egomaniacal bosses, can he still manage to look out for himself?

FULLY COMMITTED is based on characters created by playwright Becky Mode and Mark Setlock, from their experience working in the blistering world of the high-end restaurant industry.

The creative team for FULLY COMMITTED includes: Derek McLane (Sets), Sarah Laux(Costumes), Ben Stanton (Lighting), Darron L West (Sound) and Jeff Richmond (Original Music).
