Stephen Nicolazzo Fills Sydney Stages

Director Stephen Nicolazzo is keeping theatre-goers busy with two shows running on Sydney mainstages. At the same time.

Following up on its Melbourne debut, Stephen brings his “Looking for Alibrandi” adapation to Belvoir Street Theatre. Melina Marchetta’s 1993 book has been a golden child text in Australian YA fiction since its shelf debut, but other than the 2001 film, the story has been shielded from adaptations. Until theatre director Stephen Nicolazzo made a cold call.

Sitting down with the Tuesday Drive team, he shares his connection with the story and the ongoing relevance of the migrant experience it touches on. Listeners also get a peek into ‘End Of’, his other show debuting at Griffin Theatre Company.
