Kazan was born in New York. He is the son of director Elia Kazan and his first wife, playwright Molly Kazan (née Mary Day Thacher). 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 (2011), 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 cosmic performance" of the character.
