Driving with the Parking Brake Up A comedy in two solo acts: "Mangos & Rice" by Luis Sosa "The Wedding Warrior" by Casey Dressler
Hailing from Miami and the Florida Keys, Luis Sosa and Casey Dressler team up to bring you Driving with the Parking Brake Up, an unforgettable comedy in two solo acts, Mangos & Rice and The Wedding Warrior.
Foot's on the gas but you've barely made it down the block? This show explores the lives of two people who find themselves in the space between reality and making their dreams come true.
Act 1: Mangos & Rice, written and performed by Luis Sosa, is the story of a late-blooming, early-greying, wannabe-Cuban, gay, man-boy from Miami who discovers he doesn't suck as much as he thought. From self-conscience to conscious of self! Hold on to your seat for a hysterically heartfelt ride through the life and times of Luis as he faces his fears, makes peace with his past and ultimately learns to love himself. You'll be sure to wanna shake your booty by roads end!
Act 2: The Wedding Warrior, penned and performed by Casey Dressler, is the tale of an unwed, 30-something, wedding coordinator in small town Key Largo who proves love truly is a battlefield. Join Casey as she combats her way through the mayhem and mishaps that lead up to matrimony. Better off wed? That's 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. Follow her as she imparts her pearls of wisdom and attempts to navigate the winding roads of her own heart. This story is inspired by Casey's time working as a real life wedding coordinator in Islamorada, Florida.
Driving with the Parking Brake Up- Mangos & Rice and The Wedding Warrior represent the voyages we inwardly embark upon as we bravely put one foot in front of the other and step into the unknown. Driving with the Parking Brake Up is an uplifting life-affirming theatre experience that celebrates the discovery of self and venturing towards the places we fear to tread, but do anyway. Buckle up for this hilariously heartwarming adventure!
