Surf City Hotel brings Dinner Theatre to LBI This Fall
Surf City Hotel presents “Fully Committed” by Becky Mode for two performances this fall, featuring a dinner theatre format. Dinner will be served in the restaurant, followed by a show in the night club area known as the Beach Club. Performance dates are Friday, October 11 and Saturday, November 9, with dinner at 6 and the show beginning at 8:30.
LBI’s own Jason Booth stars in this highly entertaining one-act play that follows a day in the life of Sam Peliczowski, an out-of-work actor who mans the reservation line at Manhattan’s number-one restaurant. Jason plays 40 wildly diverse characters, among them the harried, but even-tempered Sam, a chef who bullies him, a chipper assistant to Gwyneth Paltrow, an imposing socialite, and other New York types desperate to land a prime reservation or the right table.
The New York Times called “Fully Committed” “immensely entertaining, a richly comic affirmation of everything I’ve ever heard, or suspected, about the bad behavior that good food can inspire.” Time Out NY wrote: “hilarious and touching, gallops along at a swift, almost frantic pace,” and the New York Post called it “a sparkling one-man tour de force…very funny and very believable.”
Tickets are priced at $60 per person plus tax & service gratuity for a 3-course plated dinner and show, and are currently available by calling the restaurant manager at 609-494-7281 x303 or through email at [email protected] There is limited availability for both performances.
Located a few steps from beautiful Atlantic Ocean beaches, the Surf City Hotel is a historic landmark on Long Beach Island. The Surf City Hotel, under ownership of the Gewirtz family since 2017, combines a storied history with newly upgraded hotel rooms and restaurant/bar facilities.
