Steve Galluccio started his career in the Montreal underground theatre scene in 1990. He burst into the mainstream with Mambo Italiano, one of the most successful plays in Canadian theatre history. The play was turned into a movie which became an international hit, sold in more than fifty-three countries, including the U.S. Galluccio followed Mambo with the Gemini Award-winning TV series Ciao Bella. Ciao Bella was also broadcast in Europe and the United States. Galluccio’s second feature film Surviving My Mother won the audience favourite award at the Montreal Film Festival, and was featured in many prestigious film festivals all over the world. Galluccio’s third feature, the bilingual Funkytown opened in January 2011. In Piazza San Domenico, Galluccio’s ninth play was the number one comedy in Montreal in the fall of 2009, selling out most of its extended run. The play will be performed in French in Montreal, and in Germany. In his first production venture, Galluccio purchased the rights to the Broadway hit 39 Steps. The play will be produced in French in Montreal in 2012. Galluccio is currently working on the sequel to Mambo Italiano, the movie.

QUOTES OF NOTEIn Piazza San Domenico
“In Piazza San Domenico is a downright crowd pleaser, a comedy for the masses. As happens very rarely in Montreal theatre, this is a show that can break out of our incestuous little theatrical community past those audience members dying to point out a deus ex machina ending or a character’s lack of motivation, and fulfill the one purpose a comedy was designed for in the beginning: entertainment.”
“Three cheers for light-hearted entertainment! Billed as a romantic comedy inspired by Feydeau, Goldoni and Sophia Loren, it bears the mark of all three, with a dash of trademark Galluccio.”
“In Piazza San Domenico harkens to classic Shakespearian comedies.”
