The limited run has Florida theatre patrons dancin’ around to get tickets. If you have to change your date of another show to make “The Wedding Singer” than do so. This is one wedding party you won’t want to miss. “The Wedding Singer” only plays June 21, 2013 through June 30, 2013. Directed and Choreographed by Patrick Fitzwater with Musical Direction by Manny Schvartzmann.
After Slow Burn’s critical successes of the first three shows, “Avenue Q“, “Side Show“, and “Sweeney Todd“, the award-winning Slow Burn Theatre Company ends its fourth season with the feel-good show “The Wedding Singer“.
“The Wedding Singer takes us back to a time when hair was big, greed was good, collars were up, and a wedding singer might just be the coolest guy in the room. It’s 1985 and rock-star wannabe Robbie Hart is New Jersey’s favorite wedding singer. He’s the life of the party, until his own fiancée leaves him at the altar. Shot through the heart, Robbie makes every wedding as disastrous as his own. Enter Julia, a winsome waitress who wins his affection. As luck would have it, Julia is about to be married to a Wall Street shark, and unless Robbie can pull off the performance of a decade, the girl of his dreams will be gone forever.” Slow Burn.
“The Wedding Singer” is Slow Burn Theatre’s second summer show, following last summer’s “Xanadu“. “After last summers success with “Xanadu“, we’re looking forward to bringing South Florida another fun, feel-good, summer show,” said Patrick Fitzwater, Co-Artistic Director of Slow Burn Theatre Company. “It’s a great time to lighten it up a little and showcase some of the funny, high-energy, contemporary works that didn’t get the runs they deserved in New York.”
The cast of Slow Burn Theatre’s “The Wedding Singer” includes: Clay Cartland (Robbie), Courtney Poston (Julia), Conor Walton (George), Domenic Servidio (Sammy), Erica Mendez (Holly), Rick Hvizdak (Glen), Nicole Piro (Linda), Penny Mandel (Rosie) and the Slow Burn Ensemble; Jerel Brown, Rick Peña, Ben Solmor, Jonathan Yepez, Lauren Bell, Sabrina Gore, Kaitlyn O’Neill and Alisha Todd.
