Tony Galati the Musical premiered at the Perth Fringe World and sold every single ticket, including extra added shows. It then had an extended return season at the same festival in 2020 and sold out most shows.
Inspired by the tale of Tony Galati – the real life immigrant-born “Spud King” of Western Australia – it featured a cast of five, a full band, and garnered media attention on radio and in newspapers, and national attention on Sunrise.
Tony himself attended opening night and told ABC radio the show “blew me away … some of it was very emotional, especially the bits about my father.”
