 The Boy from Oz tells the dazzling, funny and heart-breaking story of the great entertainer Peter Allen — from his humble beginnings growing up in the Australian outback, through a meteoric rise to fame as an international star who would break all box office records at Radio City Music Hall in New York. Singing in pubs from age 11, Peter survived family tragedy to become a local TV star at 16. Discovered by Judy Garland, he married her daughter Liza Minnelli and went on to become a beloved performer and an Oscar-winning songwriter.

The New York Times reviewer noted: Peter Allen brought entertainment and joy in his life and in his work. This show and the people involved deliver that spirit honestly.”
