Arts Alive! podcast: Actor/director Alan Mohney Jr.

Bill DeYoung



Our guest on today’s Arts Alive! podcast is actor Alan Mohney Jr., who plays 32 different characters – without leaving the stage – in Becky Mode’s Fully Committed, which opened Thursday night at the Off-Central in St. Petersburg.

Fully Committed takes place in a shabby, fluorescent-lit office in the basement of a trendy – and very, very expensive – Manhattan restaurant. Sam (Mohney) is a chronically-unemployed actor who’s paying the bills by taking phone reservations. And abuse.

Everybody, including the very rich, the very famous and the extremely obnoxious – wants a table NOW, TONIGHT or some other day the place is inevitably all booked up (a.k.a. fully committed). That sort of thing doesn’t stop them from browbeating poor Sam.

Mohney does all the voices, and the body language, for everyone Sam has to frenetically deal with. That includes the restaurant’s egomaniacal chef and other upper-deck employees.

Mohney, a Pinellas native who’s been a fixture on the theater scene for years, is also a gifted director – just at the Off-Central, he helmed the top-drawer productions Breadcrumbs, A Number and No Exit.
