In 2011, Matarazzo was cast an alternate for the Broadway production of Priscilla, Queen of the Desert: The Musical.
Matarazzo has only acted in theater and television, without taking any film roles since his career début in the year of 2011. Dustin Henderson from Stranger Things does not have any front teeth, as does Matarazzo. He has a condition that delays his development and growth called cleidocranial dysplasia. He frequently shows off his fake teeth whilst on the red carpet, including his time on the premiere of Stranger Things.
