SHOW SYNOPSIS

'The Boy From Oz' is the most successful Australian musical ever, and the first to make it to Broadway. It is a musical biography / tribute to the late great Peter Allen. Peter Allen was born in the outback Australian town of Tenterfield in 1944. He made his entertainment debut at the age of five impersonating Al Jolson. As a teenager he became a pop star and then toured Asia. There he met Judy Garland who took him to London where he met and became engaged to her daughter Liza Minnelli. In the US Peter enjoyed the highs of success by winning an Oscar, selling out performances in Radio City Music Hall, and receiving adulation when he returned to Australia. There were also plenty of lows … breaking up with his wife, staging a Broadway flop, the death of his partner, and his own battle with illness. Peter Allen had an extraordinary life which producer Ben Gannon realized had the potential to become a magnificent musical, and together with Robert Fox they turned it into the smash hit it became; 'The Boy From Oz'.

Timothy Langan as Peter Allen

"Timothy Langan impressed as Peter Allen giving a very relaxed, confident performance. He captures the the spirit of Allen. If there is such a species as a born entertainer then surely Allen fits the description."  - Sydney Arts Guide
