Who is Nicholas Kazan?

Nicholas Kazan is an American writer, producer and director. He is the son of director Elia Kazan, and his first wife, playwright Mary Day Thacher Kazan. He married Robin Swicord, a writer, producer, actress, and director, in 1984. His daughter is the actress Zoe Kazan. Through his mother, Kazan is a direct descendant of classicist and college administrator Thomas Anthony Thacher, Yale president Jeremiah Day, and founding father Roger Sherman.

Kazan, a noted playwright, premiered his newest work, Mlle. God, in Los Angeles with the "Ensemble Studio Theatre-LA". Kazan's "dark comedy" re-invents "Frank Wedekind"'s seminal “Lulu” character. He noted his inspiration came "most of all by "Louise Brooks"' luminous comic performance" of the character.
