FROM THE ARTIST:
The Wedding Warrior is a One Woman comedy loosely based on Playwright/Performer, Casey Dressler's time working as a wedding coordinator in her hometown of, Islamorada in The Florida Keys.
Better off wed? That is just one of the questions Casey poses as she passes the torch to an incoming wedding coordinator in this charming, comedic peek into the chaos that ensues before the vows are taken.
The Wedding Warrior was written in 2014 and has already been produced nationally and internationally to critical acclaim. Performances include The Edinburgh Festival Fringe in Scotland, Theatre Row in NYC, 59e59 Theaters in NYC, The Alliance Theatre in Miami, BLUEDOG Acting Co. in Fort Lauderdale, The Vanguard in Fort Lauderdale and The Fort Lauderdale Fringe Festival. Upcoming performances include runs at The 20th Anniversary New York International Fringe Festival and the Chicago Fringe Festival!
"'The Wedding Warrior' is one of those uplifting and beautiful plays that brings a smile to your face...Effortlessly bouncing from character to character, Dressler gifts the audience a performance to remember...The momentum was consistently moving as each beat was hit. The array of emotions St. Leon helped Dressler find allowed the play to resonate with anyone watching...'The Wedding Warrior' is a triumphant production that is not to be missed." Full Review
“While the plot of ‘The Wedding Warrior’ might seem to be the stuff of rom-com fluff, it has an authenticity owing to Dressler’s real-life experience. Her sadness seems relatable rather than forced or self-indulgent. She also shows a great knack for comedy as she shifts into kooky characters and parodies women setting up for a fight when it’s time to throw the wedding bouquet. All in all, ‘The Wedding Warrior’ is a sweetly endearing comedy.” Full Review
