Steve Galluccio started his career in the Montreal underground theatre scene in 1990 and then burst onto the mainstream with his play Mambo Italiano, which became an internationally successful film. He went on to write the Gemini Award–winning TV series Ciao Bella; two more feature films, Surviving My Mother and the bilingual Funkytown; and the book Montréal à la Galluccio, a whimsical guide to his beloved hometown. His new play, The St. Leonard Chronicles, opened in 2013 at Montreal’s Centaur Theatre and sold out before its run. The French version premiered at Montreal’s Théâtre Jean Duceppe in December 2014 and is travelling to cities across Quebec in 2015.
