Late, Late At Night

The Rick Springfield Story

Sunday 21 July 2:00pm
Theatre 2

A Pop-rock Adaptation Of Rick Springfield’s Autobiography.

Written by award-winning Australian playwright, Kieran Carroll and starring rising Sydney performer, Jackson Carroll (no relation) Late, Late At Night is a pop-rock stage adaptation of Rick Springfield’s compelling and searing autobiography, the New York Times best-seller, Late, Late at Night. Directed by Robert Johnson, the show features over 20 fantastic Springfield gems from Zoot to the present day and includes many of Springfield’s 17 Top 40 American hits in the 1980s.

This show traces Springfield’s Australian and British childhood, his early music days in Australia, his rollercoaster ride in 1970s America and the huge pop and acting successes of the 1980s. This is followed by his fall from public view, his mental health demise, and finally, the resurrection of Rick Springfield as an artist in the 21st century.

Late, Late At Night captures the heart and essence of Springfield’s major concerns and musings: depression, God, no God, his parents, self-motivation, a long sustaining career, love versus sex, music versus acting, his wife and sons, the way America shaped him and what he left behind in Australia as he built his career to lead the seemingly glamorous and not-so-glamorous expatriate life.

Late, Late At Night is an epic journey of a suburban boy whose journey to fame and fortune came with large personal costs.

Duration: Approximately 2 hours and 30 minutes including intermission.
