“My songs are my biography” – Peter Allen
The first Australian musical to conquer Broadway, The Boy from Oz was a huge success here in Australia with multi-award winner Todd McKenney as Peter Allen. The Broadway version was nominated for five Tony Awards in 2004, including Best Musical, and won Best Actor in a Musical (Hugh Jackman).
The Boy from Oz focuses on the extraordinary life of legendary singer/songwriter Peter Allen, from his birth in 1944 in Tenterfield, NSW and humble beginnings growing up in rural Armidale to his meteoric rise to fame as an international star. The story covers Peter’s career in Australia and the United States, as well as his relationships with legendary sstars Judy Garland and Liza Minnelli, until his death in 1992.
The Boy from Oz weaves many of Peter Allen’s most famous and beloved songs into his life story, including: Not the boy next door, Quiet Please, There’s a Lady on Stage, Everything Old is New Again, I Honestly Love You, Don’t Cry Out Loud, Tenterfield Sadler, I Still Call Australia Home and I Go to Rio.
