Writer and director:
Long Island-born Matt Morillo has made quite a splash in the world of independent theater and film. After graduating film school, he made his debut with his feature, The Pretenders, an award-winning romantic comedy. His subsequent short films, most notably Maid of Honor, also attracted numerous awards. He has since found the theatrical stage a very congenial venue for his writing, both short-form and long-form. His first play, Angry Young Women In Low-Rise Jeans With High-Class Issues, was a runaway hit on two continents and received a publishing deal from Samuel French, Inc. and has since been made into a web series. Since then two more plays of Morillo's have been published by Samuel French Inc: All Aboard the Marriage Hearse (coming soon to the Lounge Theater in Los Angeles), and American Soldiers. In 2012 Morillo premiered is dark comedy The Inventor, The Escort, The Photographer, Her Boyfriend and His Girlfriend, at theater for the New City in NYC. Following postivie reviews, he then brought it to the 2013 Fringe festival in LA, where it also received high praise and sold out audiences. His newest play Allen Wilder 2.0 premiered this past Winter at Theater for the New City in NYC and will make an LA debut sometime in the near future.
