    Event description

    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 two hours plus adaptation – based on Springfield’s self-penned autobiography – goes far beyond Rick’s popular pop image or what he is best remembered for on the 80s pop charts. 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.

    This play adaptation is written as a two act, one-man work. Late, Late At Night is a tumultuous and exhilarating journey of an Australian-American songwriter whose 17 top 40 hits in America with sales of 25 million albums worldwide make him one of Australia’s most successful musical exports of all time.

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