MARIO

SYDNEY PREMIERE

mario 400

Conceived by Blake Bowden and Phil Scott
Written by Phil Scott
Directed by Chris Parker

For a short while the American tenor Mario Lanza was the greatest star of the 1950s. One of the first superstars, his records topped the charts, he was the darling of Hollywood, and everyone fell for his charm and that beautiful voice. Ten years later, Mario was all washed up, dying mysteriously at the age of 38.

What happened? What changed the smiling kid from Brooklyn into the diva that MGM sacked? Were the Mafia involved in his death?

Directed by Chris Parker, this show re-created an era of memorable music, murderous mafiosi, and Louis B Mayer.
